The Lion King

The Lion King story is set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa. Expect Disney's multi award-winning musical to redefine your expectations of theatre.

What Is The Lion King About?

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

A musical that is both a modern-day classic and a state-of-the-art multi-sensory experience. The African plains are brought to life on stage by amazing dancers and gigantic puppets that represent the varied and stunning African flora & fauna - expect running herds of gazelles, cheetahs, birds, giraffes and more!

    I have been to see this show in 2004, 2010 and 2018. Each time.has been more spectaular than the last. I had the joy of bringing my children this time, and it was one of the highlights of our European trip whilst touring from Australia. If you only ever get to see one West End show in your life, make sure its this one! !!

  • Awesome!

    15 January 2018

    My husband and I went as a b'day treat for him (this was out first time watching this). I have seen a handful of theatre productions in my time, however, this by far was the BEST I have ever seen! The stage productions, acting, costumes, storyline was just amazing! A big applaud for the band and the actors in this play as they did a tremendous amount of work. They really captured the audience attention, and even got the emotions! It was so like the movie, with a few little twists to make it exciting. I highly recommend this, and would love to go back again in the near future.

    I was really excited to see this show, as I had heard so many great comments from friends who had previously been. And they weren’t wrong, a spectacular feast for the eyes and ears. The performances were outstanding, including the choreography of the scenes and sets. And the music just enhanced all the wonders that I saw in front of me. Truly magical, I highly recommend this to everyone. Prepare to be delighted!
