One of the most exciting days in the West End Theatre calendar is just three weeks away and we’ve been spoiled. Today, the line-up for West End LIVE 2018 has been announced and it’s a pretty good one, even if I do say so myself. Seriously, this is a date you’ve got to put in your diary!

Location: Trafalgar Square, London, WC2N 5DN

For the 14th year running, Trafalgar Square will be transformed into a riot of song, dance and colourful costumes for the biggest free celebration of the best of the West End. Yes, that’s right – free. There are performances from new hit shows and long-running favourites, as well as a variety of activities to keep you in the heart of the West End all weekend, including stalls, meet-and-greets, refreshments and sing-alongs.

Produced and organised by Westminster City Council and Society of London Theatre, with support from the Mayor of London, West End LIVE is an annual highlight of London’s cultural calendar, which attracts thousands of theatre fans young and old across the weekend.
