Billed as the West End’s sexiest night of the year, a host of West End performers will bare all in support of the Make A Difference Trust, helping people living with HIV and AIDS.

This year’s theme is sport as two performances of “On Your Marks…Get Set…Strip!” will be presented on 2 September 2012 at the Cafe de Paris in London.

International Rugby Union player Ben Cohen will be joining the celebrities at this year’s event, which is directed by Darren Carnall supported by a host of choreographers and over 100 of the West Ends hottest male and female dancers.

TheatreMAD, part of the MAD Trust, produced its first West End Bares in 2010 and has raised over £85,000 for the charity through the shows.

West End Bares is inspired by the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS fundraiser Broadway Bares, created by director Jerry Mitchell. Their recent show in June in New York, Broadway Bares – Happy Endings, raised over $1.2 million for the charity.

Tickets from £40.
