West End LIVE confirms 2015 dates
Date Posted: 27/01/15
West End LIVE, the world's largest celebration of musical theatre, will once again return to its home in London's iconic Trafalgar Square for a weekend this June in a festival that will feature performances from some of the biggest shows on the scene right now.
Celebrating its 11th year, the event will feature stellar line-ups from the capital's most successful productions, with an exclusive programme that will see some of the entertainment scene's favourite stars.
While an official setlist has yet to be released, last year saw Billy Elliot, Wicked, Les Miserables, Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon, Forbidden Broadway and Matilda taking to the stage for a ten-minute slot.
Some 500,000 fans turned out to enjoy the packed weekend of performances in 2014 to celebrate the festival's tenth anniversary, and 2015 is set to be just as exciting.
While the bulk of the attractions took place in Trafalgar Square, last year saw the arrival of a stunning Spiegeltent in Leicester Square where theatregoers could try on some of the extravagant costumes that performers dress up in every day.
There were also opportunities to learn about every aspect of theatre work, from the essential nature of having a smooth-running backstage area to the intricate preparation that goes into hair and make-up.
Much of this is likely to be repeated for 2015 as West End LIVE continues to go from strength to strength, with the Conversation Q&As advertised last year proving especially popular with visitors.
Full details of what attendees can expect will be announced over the coming months in the run-up to the celebration itself, which will take place on June 20th and 21st.
West End LIVE is one of the most anticipated events in the London theatre calendar, and is considered a great opportunity for theatregoers to turn up in their thousands to sample the best shows in the capital and decide which they want to see in full.
