West End Boys

Travelling through London, West End shows are constantly in your face. The ads, the lighted signs, the queues of tourists standing outside. But they’re a pricey proposition, especially for families. Head down to Trafalgar Square this weekend to get a free taster of some of the very best musicals, shows and plays in town. The casts of some of the top shows in town will be bringing their golden voices and diamond toes to the outdoor stage; the show will include excerpts from Stomp, Wicked, Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys and High Society, as well as kids faves Horrible Histories, Matilda and Dora the Explorer. Get there early to avoid the huge queues. Free. Saturday 11am-6pm and Sunday 12pm-6pm. More here
