The producers of the hit musical and film Mamma Mia! are in the process of applying for planning permission to build a temporary venue in London’s Waterloo area, where they can recreate an authentic Greek taverna and event space.

Abba songwriter Bjorn Ulvaeus and producer Ingrid Sutej have applied for planning permission to recreate a Greek taverna, which will house Mamma Mia! The Party, an immersive stage show inspired by the musical.

Audiences will also be served Mediterranean food as part of the experience, which promises to “transport them to the Greek island paradise” with a recreated taverna, courtyard, olive trees and fountain.

The concept has already opened in Stockholm, where it has been running since January 2016.
