The Olivier Award-winning West End production of Hamilton will have a special gala performance on 29 August to raise funds for Sentebale, the charity founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.

Every ticket sold for the performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit show on the night will raise money for Sentebale, a charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for young people and children affected by HIV in southern Africa.

Hamilton's producers, Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh, said: "We are thrilled to be collaborating with Sentebale, the charity founded by the Duke of Sussex and Prince Seeiso, for this special performance of Hamilton at the Victoria Palace Theatre. Whilst there has been a significant advancement in the treatment and care of HIV, the virus sadly still affects whole communities in many parts of the world, and particularly in southern Africa. We are delighted to help raise funds for this extraordinary cause."

The production stars Jamael Westman, Rachelle Ann-Go and Giles Terera, and opened in December last year to unanimous acclaim, including a five-star review from Sarah Crompton.

Tickets for the charity event are available here.
