Billy Elliot celebrates 10 years on London’s West End

Based on the film starring Jamie Bell, it has been seen by more than 10 million people since it opened at London's Victoria Palace Theatre.

It tells the story of a mining community in crisis during the Thatcher years and the ballet-loving son of one of the miners on strike.
