In Pictures: Saturday at West End LIVE

First Published 20 June 2016, Last Updated 6 July 2016

The time was now, the weekend was here! As was an awesome array of majestic musicals, sensational stars and peerless performers playing the crowds to perfection. It can only have been West End LIVE with MasterCard.  

This weekend saw the annual return of the incredible free musical theatre festival to Trafalgar Square, and what a couple of days we had, as London’s most popular shows and theatrical performers took to the stage to thrill thousands of West End fans.

Over the course of the weekend, an estimated 500,000 people filled every inch of the landmark venue to witness a show that packed all the musical punch of a burly Bugsy Malone boxer, and all for the unbeatable price of… well, nothing!

From Matt Cardle to Matilda The Musical, Pixie Lott to The Phantom Of The Opera, and Beverley Knight’s The Bodyguard to The Barricade Boys, the list of glitzy acts and stunning shows is a tough task to put into words.

Luckily, our photographer Pamela Raith was at hand to capture some wonderful snaps of events on and off the stage, allowing us all to relive a truly rockin’ weekend.

Here’s the best of the action from Saturday, with pictures from Sunday available here.

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.

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.
