Weekday Matinee Shows London in October 2022

Theatre is not just for the weekend! Matinee shows in London take place every day of the week. Matinee theatre is great for theatregoers who want to see the latest openings but also want to keep their evenings free, or are looking a way to spend an afternoon.

Most West End shows in London will have matinee shows, so if you’re wanting a concert experience at Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, or to spend a magical afternoon at the theatre at The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, you can do it at a weekday matinee.

Browse our list of West End shows with a weekday matinee and see a weekday matinee whenever it suits you. Check out our Sunday shows guide for Sunday matinees.
