Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi-award winning musical The Lion King will redefine your expectations of theatre.
A spectacular visual feast, this adaptation of Disney's much-loved film transports you to a dazzling world that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects, and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
"If you have never seen The Lion King before, or even if you have, keep going back to keep this show alive. It thoroughly deserves its longstanding place on the map of London’s Theatreland."
