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…

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. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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.
