Richie Gibson, Event Director for West End LIVE on bringing the best of London’s theatre to Trafalgar Square.
It’s been months in the planning, but the stage is finally set for West End LIVE in association with Mastercard, the free annual curtain raiser on the wonderful world of London’s West End theatre. This is the eighth annual West End LIVE and this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than ever.
We’re expecting over 250,000 people from across the UK and beyond, as far afield as Belgium, Italy and the USA to descend on Trafalgar Square.
For the first time, we’re delighted to say that casts from every single West End musical will hot foot it from the theatre to perform for the Trafalgar Square crowds. New musicals Ghost The Musical, The Wizard of Oz and Shrek The Musical will join long runners including Billy Elliot, Chicago, Wicked and BBC2 Olivier Award winner We Will Rock You.
We truly believe that London theatre is the best in the world, but if you need any further incentive, but if you need any further incentive, we’re running a fantastic competition too, giving one lucky winner a West End weekend to remember.
You could win £100 of John Lewis vouchers, Theatre Tokens plus a night’s stay including dinner at the Trafalgar Hotel in the heart of central London. To enter, simply visit: timeout.com/competition/westendlive2012
Once you’ve seen one of them you’ll want to see them all. All you need is a passion for show tunes and perhaps an umbrella!
West End LIVE is presented by Westminster City Council in partnership with The Society of London Theatre.
