WhatOnStage went to the second birthday party for the West End musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie last night to chat with the cast, as well as Jamie Campbell – the inspiration for the musical – and his mother Margaret.

Layton Williams, Rita Simons, Melissa Jacques, Phil Nichol and Sejal Keshwal joined Campbell and his mother to wish the show a happy birthday as it celebrates its second year playing in the West End. The musical began previews at the Apollo Theatre on 6 November 2017 after its world premiere run at the Sheffield Crucible from 8 to 25 February that year. The West End show is currently booking until 29 August 2020.

Williams will play his final performance as Jamie in the West End on 4 January before leading the new tour from 8 February, which will also star Shane Richie and travel to Sheffield, Edinburgh, Northampton, Birmingham, Canterbury, Newcastle, Brighton, Nottingham, Aberdeen, Llandudno, Southampton, Glasgow, Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Leicester, Woking, Leeds, Salford and Amsterdam.
