The running order for this year's West End Live – which takes place on 16 and 17 June – has been announced.

The free two-day event returns to Trafalgar Square this month featuring a host of West End productions and solo performers.

There's a strong representation for new British musicals this year with the casts of Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Eugenius!, Knights Of The Rose, Six and Tina all set to perform over the weekend.

Other new additions to this year's lineup are Bat Out Of Hell, Brief Encounter, Chicago, Circolombia, Heathers, Kiss Me, Kate, Little Shop of Horrors, Madagascar, A Spoonful Of Sherman and Strictly Ballroom.

Returning favourites at the two-day open-air event include Disney's Aladdin, Dreamgirls, Kinky Boots, Disney's The Lion King, Mamma Mia!, Matilda, Les Misérables, Motown, The Phantom Of The Opera, Thriller Live and Wicked.

Other performers include soprano Nadine Benjamin (who will star in ENO's Porgy and Bess later this year), X Factor winner Matt Cardle, Wicked star Louise Dearman and Britain's Got Talent winners Collabro. Finishing off the weekend in style will be a performance from a quartet made up of Nathan Amzi, Trevor Dion Nicholas, Emma Kingston and Danielle Hope.

Notable omissions from the lineup include Hamilton, 42nd Street and School of Rock.
