It’s probably been a long time since you’ve been in Theatreland, but there’s finally a great reason to make that trip back to your favourite streets of London.
The Silent Disco Walking Tours are coming back to the West End! Trip Advisor’s number 1 ranked walking tour for London are ready to lead musical lovers on an all-singing all-dancing tour around Theatreland, now that restrictions on outdoor entertainment are lifted.
As you visit 20 theatres around the West End, you’ll learn some brand new facts and anecdotes about the exciting history of London theatre. And these historical tidbits will be interspersed with songs from your favourite shows, as you’re walking by their current or former homes.
Tour-goers are encouraged to sing, dance and have all sorts of socially-distanced fun!
Producer and tour host Shaun Ames said:
“Whilst the recent government grant to the arts has been celebrated and welcomed, theatres and indeed all arts venues wait anxiously for news on how the funds will be allocated. As we cautiously welcome a return to the possibility of indoor performances, we’re well aware that for theatres, most will find the need for social distancing prohibitive, which is likely to mean that doors remain shut for months to come.
We hope that by relaunching our tours, we can not only provide musical theatre lovers with a chance to experience a slice of the West End in a socially distanced and responsible way, but also give people a chance to learn the rich history of West End Theatre and to understand how vital a part of both the culture and the economy it really is. In addition, we plan to give back what we can by donating a portion of the ticket sale to the Theatre Artist’s fund”
Tickets cost £24 for a tour that lasts between two hours and two and a half hours, £5 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Theatre Artist’s fund which provides emergency support for theatre workers and freelancers across the UK whilst theatres cannot operate.
