Olivier Award-winning show Stomp will end its run in the West End after 15 years next year.

The show opened at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2002 and went on to transfer to the Ambassadors in 2007. Now, after 10 years on at the Ambassadors, the show will close on 7 January 2018. Stomp celebrated its 15th birthday last month.

Creators of Stomp Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas say this is not the end of Stomp in London: "We want to emphasise that we don't consider this the end of Stomp here; we actually feel it's going to be good for the show to take a break, reconfigure, reinvent and return at some point in the future in a different London venue, where we can present the show in a way that is more in keeping with its original ethos."

Stomp was first performed in 1991 in Edinburgh. The show won the Olivier Award for Best Choreography in 1994, before opening in New York in February of the same year. The show has been running in New York for over 23 years.

In 2018, the show will continue to tour throughout the globe, with dates already confirmed for Paris, Beirut, Prague, Lisbon and Milan, as well as a Dutch tour, a German tour, an Indian tour, an Italian tour, an Australian and New Zealand tour and a French tour.

The show has had global tours for 26 years, in that time playing across 6 continents to over 12 million people.

Stomp will run at the Ambassadors Theatre until 7 January 2018.
