Soho Theatre x TikTok Exclusive Event announced

We're partnering with TikTok to bring a first-of-its-kind Exclusive Event to a global audience on Wednesday 31st August.

Live streamed directly from the Upstairs venue and on to TikTok, BAFTA winning Luisa Omielan will perform a special, one-off 40-minute performance of new material and some of her best bits from 10 years of acclaimed shows. TikTok users from all around the world will be able to watch this Exclusive Event by registering to attend the live event in app here.

This special Exclusive Event will be the second time Soho Theatre and TikTok have partnered, following our takeover of the TikTok LIVE studio on Sunday 7th August, as TikTok became the first ever official virtual stage to the Fringe. Alessandro Babalola (Soho Theatre’s Artist in Residence) was joined by Thanyia Moore to present a host of the best and brightest comedians at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, including Patti Harrison, Reuben Kaye, Jordan Gray, Christian Brighty, Kai Samra, Sami Abu Wardeh, Frankie Thompson and more.

Luisa Omielan’s show on Wednesday 31st will be at the forefront of TikTok’s developing Exclusive Events functionality, with Soho Theatre being the first UK venue to host and stream a ticketed live event directly on the app.

It’s all part of Soho Theatre’s continued digital growth, with three series’ of Soho Theatre Live available to watch on Amazon Prime Video UK; an exclusive catalogue of shows on British Airways; and over 30 films available to rent from Soho Theatre Player over the last three years.

Register to watch the event live on TikTok here and you can join the live audience in the Upstairs theatre by booking your tickets here.
