The annual charity fundraiser West End Bares will return to London's Novello Theatre this autumn.

Now in its eighth year, the burlesque performance will run on 29 October in aid of the Make A Difference Trust, an UK based charity with a vision of a world free from HIV and AIDS.

The theme for last year's show, which was hosted by Graham Norton, was "Excalibare" and the theme for this year's performance, and celebrity guests, will be announced in the summer.

Last year's show was attended by celebrities including Judi Dench, Michelle Visage, Samantha Bond, John Barrowman, Ramin Karimloo.

West End Bares is based on the Broadway Bares concept by director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell which he created in 1992 and has raised over $15.8million for AIDS charities stateside.
