West End LIVEThousands of people gather in Trafalgar Square to enjoy performances from top West End shows for free. A firm favourite for over 10 years, West End Live showcases the best of London's headline theatre shows for two days of fun, al fresco entertainment. Featuring live performances by the casts of top West End shows, this year's line-up includes Bat Out Of Hell, Brief Encounter, Dreamgirls, Kinky Boots, Disney's The Lion King, Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera, Matilda The Musical, Wicked and Thriller Live - just ten of the 26 shows. It's a popular event so arrive early, about an hour before the gates open (at 10.15am on Saturday and 11.15am on Sunday at the North West corner, 15 minutes later at the North East corner) and be prepared to queue but don't worry it will be worth it. This is a glorious piece of free summer fun showcasing the amazing variety on the capital's West End stage.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
