Dates have been announced for West End Live 2019.

The two-day free celebration of West End musicals will return for its 15th year in June, with shows from across the West End performing live in Trafalgar Square in front of thousands of people.

This year, the festival will be held on 22 and 23 June, with the line-up and times to be announced over the coming months.

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. Last year saw performances from the likes of Aladdin, Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Six, Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera.
