The countdown is on to the return of the legendary charity production West End Eurovision, returning to London’s Theatreland on Sunday 22 April – and the participating shows have unveiled their video idents.

Playing in the West End for the first time in four years, in a one-off spectacular at the Shaftesbury Theatre, the 8 competing shows are now seeking public votes to win the coveted The Best Video Ident Trophy. Votes can be cast via text, with details on the event’s website.

Ahead of the real 63rd annual Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal in May, the eight West End shows competing in West End Eurovision are: 42nd Street, Disney’s Aladdin, Dreamgirls, Hamilton, Kinky Boots, Mamma Mia!, The Phantom Of The Opera and Young Frankenstein. You can see all their idents below.

West End Eurovision 2018 promises a sea of flags – and outrageous costumes – as the casts of some of Theatreland’s biggest shows battle it out to be crowned the champions of West End Eurovision, to raise funds for the Make A Difference Trust.

Eight of London’s top musicals will be competing against each other by singing original Eurovision Song Contest songs to win text votes from the audience and the approval of a panel of celebrity judges and judges from each competing show.

The last West End Eurovision held in 2014 saw Les Misérables named joint winners with Mamma Mia!.

Melanie Tranter, chair of the Make A Difference Trust said, “The generosity of time talent and spirit of all of these amazing people will make the return of West End Eurovision one of the best nights in the West End. We are thrilled to see the return of this glittering night of high camp fun back for one amazing night!”

Tickets can be booked via the Shaftesbury Theatre website.

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.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

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.
