Christmas Theatre in London

We all know that Christmas is a wonderful time of year. London’s West End sparkles with all the twinkling lights, and everywhere you look, Christmas markets and pop-up performances take over the city. It’s also a chilly time of year, so you may be thinking about wrapping up warm and staying indoors. Here at London Theatre Direct, we’re like Elsa in Frozen — the cold never bothered us anyway! Banish the winter blues and discover the best West End Christmas theatre that you’ll want to put at the top of your list.

Christmas Theatre Shows for the Whole Family

From timeless tales like The Snowman and Hansel and Gretel to contemporary Christmas classics like Peter Pan Goes Wrong, family-friendly Christmas theatre in London will melt the coldest hearts. Instead of watching a Christmas film, why not explore the West End’s vast offerings and discover the magic of live theatre? Watch little minds as they see the gates of Arendelle open up in Frozen for the first time. See how children (and big kids too!) join in with Buddy’s antics in Elf — if you’re lucky, it might even snow in the theatre. Whatever West End Christmas theatre in London you see, everyone will leave with a smile on their face and a Christmas song in their head.

Pantomime Christmas Theatre Tickets

Are there pantomime Christmas theatre tickets? Oh yes, there are! Christmas theatre in the West End wouldn’t be complete without seeing a pantomime. Embrace the festive traditions with Cinderella and a daytime Potted Panto extravaganza. Or, for adult Christmas reunions, check out London Christmas theatre tickets to adult pantomimes like the all-drag Sleeping Beauty, as well as A Very Very Bad Cinderella where the Ugly Sisters take centre stage. H3: A Christmas Carol in London If you’re looking for Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol in the West End, then you’ve come to the right place. With plenty of adaptations, there are lots of ways you can follow Ebenezer Scrooge as he rekindles his festive glee. Over at the Old Vic, Jack Thorne’s A Christmas Carol returns for another year, now with Christopher Eccleston in tow. Christmas and mysteries now go hand in hand with a ghostly retelling of A Christmas Carol, or solve murders in A Sherlock Carol.

Alternative London Christmas Theatre

Christmas theatre tickets in the West End aren't all about Santa Claus, elves, and reindeer. If attending the ballet is part of your Christmas activity wishlist, prepare to be dazzled with a jazzy reimagining of Nutcracker, or delve into an imaginative world with Matthew Bourne’s Edward Scissorhands. Fancy a warmer evening? Step into Leicester Square Spiegeltent for La Clique, a variety cabaret where being on the naughty list can be a good thing.
