Emojis! Where would we be without them? *thinking face* Ever helpful in bringing expression to our texts, we’re all celebrating our favourite ‘lil characters this World Emoji Day – and what better way to do so than with our humdinger of a challenge below?

Featuring a mix of London musicals and plays in London, we’ve reimagined many of the West End’s leading titles – emoji-style. All you have to do is guess which shows our clues refer to. This may require abstraction, lateral thinking, occasional frustration… and when all else fails, plenty of asking your friends!

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website, they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, credit note or refund.

Due to the unprecedented number of orders to be processed, you may not hear from your ticket provider before your performance is due to go ahead. We are processing in strict date order of performance so please bear with us, everyone will be contacted. We ask for your patience and understanding as the current circumstances means that it is impossible to process all tickets within our usual 14 days.

If you have booked via a ticket agent, they will also be in contact with you directly.

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.
