Hamilton is finally being added to Disney Plus UK - but how can you watch it and at what time?

Since it hit theatres back in 2015, the musical Hamilton has taken the world by storm.

From starting out in New York and then expanding to Chicago the following year and then finally coming to London’s West End back in 2017, the Hamilton musical has developed a cult following for its entertaining retelling of a key part of history through culturally relevant means.

And with theatres across the country (and most of the world), currently closed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, the team behind the musical theatre force has brought it to our TV screens.
