What’s in the West End LIVE Spiegeltent?

First Published 18 June 2015, Last Updated 23 June 2015

West End LIVE is upon us. This weekend, casts from many of London’s top shows will take to a massive stage in Trafalgar Square to entertain around 500,000 theatre fans for free.

But we’re guessing you knew about the incredible Trafalgar Square shenanigans already.

Did you know that, like last year, West End LIVE will also be in Leicester Square?

A 1920s-style Spiegeltent has been erected in the world famous entertainment hub. Inside it you will find a world of stagey wonders; a world, and I’m sure Mr Wonka won’t mind me borrowing his line, of pure imagination.

From the chance to look so close at some of the West End’s finest costumes that you can see each individual sequin and a peek at the original set box of an Olivier Award-winning design to make-up demonstrations, kids’ activities, props galore and even dinosaur petting (yes, you read that right), the Spiegeltent will be packed with theatrical treats and activities.

To put you fully in the picture take a look at the poster below, which is also packed with its own theatrical surprises.

For more about what’s happening in Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square this weekend, including performance schedules, visit our West End LIVE page.

NB The layout for the Leicester Square interactive theatre experience may be subject to change.
