In Pictures: Saturday at West End LIVE

Published June 20, 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.
