Craving a West End musical? They're all still corona-curtailed, but you CAN catch a free outdoor performance most days, if you know where to go.
That place is The Garden at Centre Point, a new outdoor space right next to Tottenham Court Road tube station. Here it is:
It's playing host to free outdoor live performances every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 2pm to 7pm. You don't need to prebook. Just turn up and see what's going on.
The headline act performs each day at 6pm. "Performers [include] Emma Hatton, Laura Pick, Oliver Tompsett, Jordan Lee Davies, Luke Friend, Caroline Kay, Gabriel Mokake and Kayleigh McKnight from hit shows such as Wicked, Come From Away, & Juliet and Les Misérables."
Many of the performers will be up before an audience for the first time since March. It's a great way to support these talented singers, actors and musicians while the theatres remain closed. (The performers are getting paid by property developer Almacantar — who in turn want a boost in footfall — so the audience doesn't need to buy tickets.)
