Enjoy a free taster of West End theatre magic in Trafalgar and Leicester Squares on 21-22 June, with cast performances and panel talks.
West End Live takes current productions out of their auditoria to show off for anyone who wants to turn up to Trafalgar Square (and lots of people do: there are no tickets and you should expect to queue throughout the day). There’s a constant stream of entertainment from 11am-6pm on Saturday and 12-6pm on Sunday, with appearances by the casts of The Commitments, Matilda, Les Mis, Billy Elliot, Mamma Mia! and plenty more.
Over in Leicester Square there’ll be a 1920s Spiegeltent where you can reserve free tickets for talks with the casts of Handbagged and Shakespeare in Love, Maureen Lipman, creator of the popular Ghost Stories Andy Nyman and cast member Gary Shelford, director of Let The Right One In John Tiffany and illusionist Richard Pinner. These events are starting to fill up so if you’re interested, bag your place via Eventbrite now.
