Re-live memories from the last 5 years of West End LIVE with Virtual West End LIVE

The stagiest weekend of the year may be cancelled but West End LIVE will still be celebrating the best of the West End with Virtual West End LIVE. On the weekend of 20 – 21 June, they’ll be releasing two specially commissioned highlights programmes featuring performances from the last 5 years. Both programmes will be captioned and will be available to watch on the West End LIVE Facebook page  for 24 hours only, with one released on the Saturday and the other on the Sunday – timings will be released soon.

However, the fun doesn’t end there. The weekend will be littered with a whole host of online activities to engage with their loyal audience. Keep your eyes peeled on their social pages (Facebook | Instagram | Twitter) as they’ll be releasing a schedule ahead of the weekend.

It was announced earlier this month that West End LIVE have partnered with Sky VIP to commission a series of fifteen-minute videos with a selection of West End shows. Whilst Sky VIP customers can be amongst the first to watch these videos, the videos will then be released on our YouTube channel after the Virtual West End LIVE weekend, to be sure you don’t miss out subscribe for notifications.

West End Live is run by Westminster Council and the Society of London Theatre and has established itself over the years as a highlight of the theatrical year. It is a unique event for a world capital and one that provides a brilliant free taster of wonderful shows and an introduction into the wider West End for tens of thousands of visitors who go on to enjoy shops, restaurants, and other attractions. They very much look forward to bringing it back bigger and better than ever before next year.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. 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.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

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.
