If this news doesn’t get your inner child giddy with joy, we don’t know what will. Disney’s smash-hit West End Summer Pop-Up is back this year! And it’ll contain incredible access to their West End musicals, both beloved and up-and-coming: The Lion King, Aladdin, Mary Poppins and Frozen.

Opening up next week (Tuesday 23 July) at 21 Long Acre, Covent Garden, WC2E 9LD – right in the heart of Theatreland – Disney’s West End Summer Pop-Up will hold a whole host of free interactive experiences and special events for all ages to enjoy.

New for this year’s experience are focuses on the Frozen musical – which will open at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2020 – and Mary Poppins, which is returning to its original West End home, London’s Prince Edward Theatre, this autumn.

So if you’re looking for somewhere to chill out this summer, visit the Pop-Up experience to interact with the Frozen musical and strike a social media-worthy pose in a specially-created photo moment. And you better brush up on your “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”es, because you’ll be put through your paces with Mary Poppins’ spelling challenge while you’re there.

Looking to visit Pride Rock? You’re in luck – you can enjoy Circle Of Life, Disney’s The Lion King’s famous opening number, in fully immersive 360-degree virtual reality. You’ll also be able to learn all about the award-winning costumes, masks and puppets which are central to the show, getting up-close and personal to learn about the inspiration behind its world-class designs. And if you’re seeking a Whole New World of Aladdin fun, there’ll be its nostalgic charms in abundance – and possibly a Genie’s lamp or two…

There’s also a variety of free events taking place there daily, including exclusive performances and meets-and-greets with the casts of The Lion King and Aladdin, plus vocal and movement workshops led by Disney Theatrical Teaching Artists to get you fully immersed in the choreography. There’s even a Mary Poppins-inspired kite-making event in the programme.

The Summer Pop-Up will be open every day from Monday-Saturday 10.30am-7pm, and Sunday 11am-5pm, until Sunday 1 September 2019.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
