Enjoy the best of West End Live

West End Live is a two-day live concert event that takes place in June in Trafalgar Square, where all West End (and off-West End) musicals perform an excerpt of their show to an audience of thousands. West End Live typically takes place in June in central London. Here's West End Live performances you need to watch before visiting West End Live.

Les Misérables (2019)

Les Misérables take you through the highs and lows of one of the best musicals in the world. Les Misérables perform at West End Live every year, and you can always guarantee an excellent performance from the Les Misérables cast.

The Phantom of the Opera (2019)

The phantom of the opera is inside all of our minds at West End Live. Sure, there's no boat at West End Live, but without out the amazing set, you'll still feel shivers.

Dreamgirls (2017)

In 2017, the Dreamgirls company performed “And I’m Telling You”. Marisha Wallace performed as Effie White at West End Live. Since Dreamgirls, Marisha Wallace has starred in Oklahoma!, Hairspray, and Waitress.

In The Heights (2016)

In 2016, In The Heights took over King's Cross Theatre. In The Heights starred Sam Mackay, David Bedella, Jade Ewen, Christine Allado, Jocasta Almgill, and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt. The In The Heights cast performed an energetic mashup of “96,000” and “Carnival del Barrio”.

La Cage Aux Folles (2017)

Once you watched the La Cage Aux Folles perform "I Am What I Am" at West End Live, you'll watch dozens of other performers take on the song. John Partridge played Albin in La Cage Aux Folles.

Kinky Boots (2017)

This performance from Kinky Boots at West End Live shows off Lola and The Angels in full force — as well as their amazing costumes! It’s a catchy pop number that’s packed with sex and sass, performed wonderfully by Simon-Anthony Rhoden.

Half A Sixpence (2017)

In 2017, the Half a Sixpence cast led by Charlie Stemp as Arthur Kipps performed "FLash, Bang, Wallop!" This performance is just pure, unmitigated joy — a brilliant feel-good number!
