The square is alive, with the sound of music in September. Musical theatre fans can experience highlights from hit shows without the sting of the West End ticket prices. In fact, there are no tickets at all, you can just turn up. West End Live is an annual, open-air weekend festival of more than 30 free performances of well-established shows.
This year’s line-up includes Amélie the Musical, Back to the Future the Musical, The Book of Mormon, Dreamgirls UK Tour, Magic Mike Live, Mama Mia!, Grease UK tour, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical and Frozen.
As with all free open-air events, early arrival is recommended, and you can’t bring your own booze to this event. Performances contain flash lighting.
