Picture the scene, 500,000 theatre lovers descend to Trafalgar Square over 2 days to enjoy a celebration of the very best of the West End and without spending a dime on being there. This is West End live, an event that has been an ever present on the London festival circuit for the past 12 years and grows in popularity year on year.
Presented as ever by Mastercard, all the big musicals will be present, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to The Lion King, Jersey Boys to Les Mis, Matilda to Mamma Mia, and of course not forgetting the best of the fringe with In the Heights, Showstopper, American Idiot amongst many others. We’ll be welcoming some newcomers in the shape of Motown the Musical, The Secret Garden, Breakfast at Tiffanys and the award winning Kinky Boots. There will be a few star names on display, including Pixie Lott, Sam Barks, Matt Cardle and the unforgivably talented Beverley Knight. What’s not to love ?
Saturday kicks off at 11am running through til 6pm, Sunday starts an hour later at noon. This is a no-alcohol event, though do bring plenty of water, provisions and suncream as it could be a hot one ! Our experience tells us to get there early, it’s a non-ticketed event and queues can form around the block pretty quickly, after which it’s a strict one-in one-out policy. Don’t allow yourself to be disappointed.
We truly believe London does Theatre like no other place in the World and West End Live is indicative of this. We have the setting, the talent and the passion. Be proud, be there, sing your hearts out at West End Live 2016.
