Is there a better way to round off the weekend than with a trip to the theatre? We certainly don’t think so!

The good news is that there are so many West End shows playing on Sundays, with hit shows like 2:22 A Ghost Story, Back to the Future: The Musical, and Disney’s Frozen all playing on Sundays this season. 

You can also get lost in the magic of the wizarding world, as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has two Sunday showings at the stunning Palace Theatre on Sundays. The story picks up where the final Harry Potter book ended, providing Hogwarts fans with the opportunity to see what Harry, Ron, and Hermione got up to after leaving school – it’s not to be missed! 

The huge variety of Sunday theatre, London, means that you have more flexibility and can book tickets for a performance that feels most convenient for you. Whether your weekday schedules are busy, you live further away from the West End and need some extra time to travel in, or you’re looking for a show to see with the children over the weekend, what better than a day of Sunday theatre in London?

A Sunday show in London can also be the perfect way to round off a romantic weekend spent in the capital, and with afternoon and early evening performances showing, you can enjoy a trip to the theatre and still make it to the station before the last train home. Whether you’re looking for a romantic comedy or a spine-tingling horror production, the West End has you covered! 

For those looking to travel when it’s not so busy, it’s also an ideal day to see a show because public transport is much quieter on Sunday in London. Travelling into the West End on a weekend when you have more time available also means you’ll have the chance to experience the buzz and glamour of Theatreland and the shopping areas around the West End. After all, a trip to London’s West End isn’t just about the shows, with so much to see and do around the streets of the famous theatre district. 

So, now that you know the West End is very much open for business on Sundays, it’s the perfect time to reserve tickets for an upcoming show that you can enjoy with your family and friends.
