The Best Christmas Shows To See In The West End

The Best Christmas Shows To See In The West End 

Seeing a show under the bright lights of the West End provides a picture perfect image of Christmas, and once again there is plenty to entertain, whether you are keeping the kids occupied, getting the whole family together or simply out with a group of friends. 

My love for the West End began when I was very young; Christmas presents were trips to the theatre compared to my siblings tangible gifts. I loved it, and I still do. Whilst I've only visited the theatre once this year, it's something I continue to love doing. 

What better way to get into the festive spirit, or perhaps gift someone with an experience rather than a Boots 3 for 2 deal, than some West End treats:

Cinderella – London Palladium: The first pantomime at London’s most lavish venue in 30 years has headline stars such as Amanda Holden playing the Fairy Godmother and Paul O’Grady as the Wicked Stepmother. 

Potted Panto – Garrick Theatre: This is a fast-paced, anarchic mix of seven pantos in one, a hilariously daft but imaginative show for all the family. 

Aladdin – Hammersmith Lyric: Comedienne Vikki Stone plays Abanazer as music and comedy collide in this classic panto tale. 

The Nutcracker – London Coliseum: Tchaikovsky’s music sets the scene perfectly for this festive ballet that will dazzle and amaze with over 100 dancers and musicians involved. 

The Snowman – Peacock Theatre: Raymond Biggs’ Christmas tale of unlikely friendship will tug at the heart strings and have the whole family singing some vintage festive songs. 

A Christmas Carol – Lyric Theatre: Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from Ebeneezer Scrooge and Charles Dickens’ festive tale has been given the Broadway treatment, where this production has run for 10 years at Madison Square Gardens. 

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory – Theatre Royal Drury Lane: The mysterious and magical world served up in Roald Dahl’s classic book is brought to life in spectacular fashion by Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes. 

Santa’s New Sleigh – Arts Theatre: This charming new stage production aimed at the very little ones, is a great introduction to the Christmas story and is sure to get the whole family in the festive spirit. 

Adventures of Dick – Leicester Square Theatre: A very much adults-only take on the Dick Whittington story, this is a sizzling Christmas cabaret, and a great night out for a group of friends. 

Peter Pan – National Theatre: A contemporary, charming and sweetly funny take on JM Barrie’s enduring tale of children seeking adventure. 

All of these are performing right up to Christmas and most of them beyond, so take your pick and make a booking at today.
