Last night, The Phantom Of The Opera became the first musical to win the fiercely competitive West End Eurovision for two years in a row!

Stars from all around the West End gathered at the Adelphi Theatre to compete in this year’s competition. The casts of Dinsey’s AladdinEverybody’s Talking About Jamie, Follies, Mamma Mia!Only Fools And Horses, The Phantom Of The Opera, and Wicked all took to the stage to perform hit songs from past Eurovisions in the hopes of earning votes from the judging panel and the live audience.

Performing Grande Amore – the Italian entry at the 2015 2015 Eurovision Song Contest – The Phantom of the Opera earned 88 votes which saw them take the overall win. Phantom also won the new Outstanding Gorgeousness prize, judged by award-winning Set and Costume Designer Fly Davies and Jamie Campbell, whose story inspired Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

The Best Creative prize – judged by Bonnie Langford, Wayne Sleep, Tim Vincent, and Amber Davies – went to the cast of Wicked who performed Ukraine’s 2004 entry Wild Dances. The third trophy of the night, the Best Ident, voted for by public text vote, was awarded to Everyone’s Talking About Jamie.

All money raised from last night’s event will go to MAD Trust. The Trust works with its partners to support those living with or affected by HIV and AIDS both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

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.

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.
