Top shows join West End Live

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 21 April 2008

Two more of London's top musicals have announced they are taking part in West End Live on 23 and 24 June. The Sound Of Music and Little Shop Of Horrors join a list of productions performing at the free theatre event that also includes Avenue Q, Fame, Chicago, Dirty Dancing, Stomp, Mamma Mia!, The Drowsy Chaperone and The Lord Of The Rings.

This is the third year that Westminster Council has staged West End Live to showcase the many delights of the West End and give Londoners and tourists a taste of the wealth of entertainment on offer in the heart of the capital.

West End Live 2007, which takes place in Leicester Square between 12:00 and 18:30 on Saturday and Sunday, also features displays and exhibits by Forbidden Planet, The Science Museum, Film London, The Serpentine Gallery, The London Children’s Film Festival, The Cartoon Museum and the British Film Institute.

The Society of London Theatre (SOLT), which is working with Westminster Council to promote and enhance the West End, will also be taking part in proceedings. Details of SOLT's involvement will be announced closer to the event.

Councillor Robert Davis, Westminster's Cabinet Member for Special Events, said: "There is no other free event like it in London. From the very best that Theatreland has to offer to the latest children's shows, there really is something for everyone."

In 2006, West End Live attracted 130,000 to Leicester Square. The same numbers are expected this year.

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.
