West End LIVE 2018 crowd

Our favourite moments from West End LIVE 2018

By Carly-Ann Clements, Published June 18, 2018

West End LIVE 2018 was EPIC! There were so many brilliant performances, it’s hard to pick our favourites. So we won’t. What we’ll do instead is share our favourite moments.

We were backstage, on stage and with you, in the crowd, and we captured the whole weekend on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Check out our sneak peeks behind-the-scenes,

When casts collide

Seeing the casts of some of London’s top musicals mingling together is the stuff of magic. From Wicked to Matilda, The Lion King to Bat Out Of Hell and beyond, bringing these A-class performers together gave us all the feels…

When the casts shared the love

You might imagine a West Side Story-esque rivalry between West End Shows – that couldn’t be further from the truth. There’s so much respect between these performers and West End LIVE gives them the opportunity to spread the love… it’s a beautiful thing.

The joy backstage

There was dancing. There was singing. There was a whole lot of fun. And that was just off-stage! We enjoyed the show as much as you did, and so did our acts.

Last-minute rehearsals

Along with the official sound checks, our performers wanted to stay on top of their game, which meant reheating those vocal chords and muscles before going on stage. We even saw some last-minute costume and makeup tweaks…

The audience at West End LIVE

From group participation to individual rock-outs to just being there. West End LIVE is what it is because of YOU! Thousands of you flooded Trafalgar Square and made the weekend unforgettable.

West End LIVE will be back next year! Stay tuned to find out more about it throughout the year.
