Disney's The Lion King to tour the UK

Disney's The Lion King is set to go on a tour of the UK so that fans outside of the capital can see it for the first time.

Fans of Simba, Scar and Mufasa can go on theatre breaks around the country as the show visits Bristol and Manchester over the next year.

The show will have an 11-week run at the Bristol Hippodrome from Friday, September 7th before moving to the Manchester Palace Theatre where it runs from Thursday, December 6th until March 2013.

Producers from The Lion King have assured Disney fans around the rest of the country that over the next two and a half years the show will head to ten cities, with dates and locations to be announced.

The theatre adaptation of the famous Disney film features 15 songs, five of which are from the film alongside new songs written by the likes of Elton John and Tim Rice.

Ten million people have seen the production in the 13 years that it has been performed at the Lyceum Theatre, where it will continue to run while the production tours the UK.
