2024 marks the 50th anniversary of ABBA’s legendary performance of ‘Waterloo’ at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest and a trip to Nikos Taverna on the Greek Island of Skopelos (the stunning location where most of the exteriors of the first MAMMA MIA! film were shot) is the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, with English book by Sandi Toksvig. MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY is a unique and magical experience, bringing ABBA’s hits to life more vividly than ever before. Over the course of four glittering hours, guests can immerse themselves in a spectacular musical extravaganza, a set four-course Greek feast and an ABBA disco, all in one unforgettable evening of dancing, dining and singing!


Nikos and his wife Kate run the exotic and wonderful Nikos Taverna together with their family and friends. Told through dialogue and timeless ABBA songs, a warm, romantic and funny story evolves and unfolds during the evening, taking place around the guests as they enjoy a gourmet Greek meal. The evening ends with a fabulous 70s disco, where audience members are encouraged to stay to sing and dance to ABBA’s greatest hits.


MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY has music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus

(some songs with Stig Anderson), and a story by Calle Norlén, Roine Söderlundh and

Björn Ulvaeus, with the English book by writer, comedian and broadcaster Sandi Toksvig.

The London version of MAMMA MIA! THE PARTY, which originally opened in Stockholm in January 2016, is co-directed and choreographed by Stacey Haynes and Roine Söderlundh, with set designed by Bengt Fröderberg, lighting designed by Patrick

Woodroffe, sound designed by Gareth Owen, costumes designed by Annsofi Nyberg,

music supervision by Robin Svensson and casting by David Grindrod CDG for Grindrod

Burton Casting.
