The dates and times have been announced for this year's West End Live which will be held in Trafalgar Square.

An annual fixture for London theatregoers, the event sees leading West End productions perform classic numbers live in front of audiences, all for free. Unlike a normal show, audiences are actively encouraged to sing along.

The schedule and line-up for this year's event, which runs from midday on 16 June until 5pm on 17 June, will be announced as the year goes on.

In 2017, the event saw performances from productions including Everybody's Talking About Jamie , Five Guys Named Moe and Legally Blonde, alongside long-running stalwarts of British stages such as Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, The Lion King and Wicked.

West End Live runs on 16 and 17 June.
