Blues Brother Joshua Mumby takes our Sugar Rush Quiz

Trafalgar Square was rockin’ last month when the Blues Brothers took to the stage for West End Live. The show has returned to London for a summer special at the Hippodrome Casino and with its acclaimed band led by Jake and Elwood, audiences are in for a real treat.

Joshua Mumby plays Elwood in the musical spectacular, which features a whole host of soul classics including ‘Dancing in the Street’, ‘Soul Man’ and the song synonymous with the Blues Brothers, ‘Everybody Needs Somebody to Love’.

Joshua took some time off from rehearsals to take our Sugar Rush Quiz.
