It has won 90 international awards and is one of the most talked-about musicals of recent times.

Now this week Wicked has finally come to Leeds to cast its magical spell over audiences.

Having broken records across the world for a decade it is already the 15th longest-running West End musical of all time.

The musical, playing at The Grand until June 28, is a re-imagining of the The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, telling the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Packed with show-stopping songs, Wicked is an unforgettable experience for all ages.
