Get down with the Six queens at Buckingham Palace! Expect a royal revolution at the Platinum Party, as Henry VIII’s six wives take to the stage to share their tales. We’re expecting a feel-good atmosphere, but let’s hope Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t lose her head. Six is at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Sadly, Simba doesn’t rule over Buckingham Palace. However we just can’t wait to hear Elton John’s The Lion King music reverberate around the capital. We’re looking forward to a Disney The Lion King medley at the Platinum Party at the Palace. The Lion King is at the Lyceum Theatre.

Don’t miss a sensational performance from the West End cast of The Phantom of the Opera during the Platinum Party at the Palace. The musical is halfway to its own Platinum Jubilee, as it’s been around for over 35 years in London.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Lin Manuel Miranda
The two musical theatre juggernauts will collaborate for a one-off musical performance. We’re not sure what will take place, but between them, they’ve won nine Tonys and nine Oliviers, so we're expecting something big. Discover more about Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals in the West End..
The seven-time Olivier-winning musical will take part in the Platinum Party at the Palace. It’s an interesting choice, given that Hamilton follows the American revolutionaries who founded their nation and broke ties with the British. However, we’re expecting a cameo King George III appearance will make the Queen chuckle. And perhaps Giles Terera will reprise the role of Aaron Burr? Hamilton is at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Queen Elizabeth II loves her coat of many colours, and we’re sure the Queen will love Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat too. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical will take centre stage during the proceedings. Maybe they’ll add “platinum” as a colour for the celebration?
