The line-up will feature first time appearances from new hits Come From Away, Only Fools And Horses, Waitress, 9 To 5 The Musical, Fiddler On The Roof and Magic Mike Live amongst others – as well as the return of much-loved classics like Les Misérables, The Phantom Of The Opera, Wicked and Disney’s The Lion King.

Audiences will also get exclusive previews of hotly anticipated shows yet to arrive in the West End, including the Gloria Estefan musical On Your Feet!, Shakespearean pop musical & Juliet, dance spectacular Heartbeat Of Home (from the company behind Riverdance) and the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

Taking place on the 22 and 23 June, there will also be family-friendly stalls, sing-alongs, signings, merchandise and other activities.

West End LIVE, produced and organised by Westminster City Council and Society of London Theatre with support from the Mayor of London, celebrates London’s world-leading West End theatre scene, which continues to break audience and box office records. Now in its 15th year, the totally free, unticketed event attracts tens of thousands of theatre fans to Trafalgar Square over the weekend.

Cllr Nickie Aiken, Westminster City Council leader, said: “West End LIVE shows why hundreds of thousands of people are drawn to our theatres every year. There is so much to do in the West End and we know that many people go on to combine the West End LIVE taster of world-class musicals with shopping and a visit to our landmark restaurants and bars. Last year’s shows were incredible. We are into our 15th year and it is going to be even bigger and better. Most importantly West End Live is still completely free!’

Julian Bird, Chief Executive of SOLT and UK Theatre, said: “Following another record-breaking year for London’s theatre industry, it is fantastic to be back in Trafalgar Square, continuing our partnership with the City of Westminster to showcase the extraordinary talent and creativity of so many top West End productions. Nowhere else do theatre fans get the opportunity to see exclusive live performances from their favourite shows – and all for free.’

Shows performing at West End LIVE 2019 are:

West End LIVE will be BSL interpreted by Sue MacLaine and Marco Nardi.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there! We’ve still got more acts, presenters and performance schedules to announce yet!

And whether you’re in the crowd, or can’t make it down over the weekend, we’ll be backstage at West End LIVE throughout the weekend sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes content, so be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter so you don’t miss out!

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.
