Conductor John Wilson, star of 2009's MGM musicals Prom, leads soloists, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Maida Vale Singers in Andre Previn's classic feel-good show The Good Companions.

A musical troupe is set for financial and musical ruin after their manager runs off with all their money and the pianist! But as luck would have it, Miss Trant - a wealthy young lady - bails them out, saving the day. The group then sets off on a hilariously adventurous tour, taking the UK by storm.
