Festive London: Five of the Best Theatre Shows

Christmas provides a fantastic excuse for a winter mini-break in our capital city. Why not book London hotels from Travelodge and head off on an exciting festive break full of Christmas spirit?

Whether travelling as a couple, with friends or with the kids, you’ll find rooms to suit at Travelodge hotels. And with 51 city centre locations, you’re sure to find a Travelodge near to whatever it is you want to do in festive London.

The city has so much to offer that it’s hard to know where to start. Whether you wish to take in the world class museums, or stroll London’s stunning parks and gardens. Or if you simply want to take in the amazing festive atmosphere – the lights on Oxford Street and the giant Christmas tree on Trafalgar Square, a trip to London makes for a magical pre-Christmas break.

After a busy day shopping on Oxford Street or browsing the market at Covent Garden, why not kick back and relax at one of the amazing theatre shows in town? The bright lights of London’s theatreland have much to offer, including shows to suit all ages and tastes.

Among the myriad of fabulous theatre shows to choose from, you’ll find the following city centre spectacles:

1 - A Christmas Carol

Arts Theatre, Great Newport Street

A perfect pre-Christmas treat, this classic Dickens’ tale has been re-worded into a mesmerising one man show, with Simon Callow telling the tale of miserly Scrooge and his three visiting ghosts.

2 – Matilda the Musical

Cambridge Theatres, Earlham Street

Ideal for kids of all ages, and fans of the genius works of the late, great Roald Dahl, Matilda the Musical is a real delight. This familiar tale of a very special little girl is full of rousing musical numbers and amazing illusions, to leave a family audience open-mouthed.

3 – Shrek the Musical

Drury Lane, Theatre Royal

Another great choice for families with young children, Shrek the Musical is suitable for little ones aged four and above. Kids will, of course, be familiar with the story of the cheeky green ogre, the donkey and the princess, but will be charmed nevertheless to see it come to life on the stage before them.

4 – Let It Be

Prince of Wales Theatre, Coventry Street

Fans of the Fab Four from Liverpool are sure to love this showcase of the band’s greatest hits. Telling the story of John, Paul, George and Ringo’s rise to fame, this is a show that is sure to get everyone singing along.

5 – Rock of Ages

Rock out to an amazing 80’s rock soundtrack at this fun, funky show. A love story in which a small town girl falls for a big city rocker, Rock of Ages is a great show to get you in the mood to party if you fancy hitting the nightlife of Soho afterwards. Just don’t forget to pack your skintight leather trousers and something with sequins or studs!

A trip to a London theatre makes for a fantastic festive treat, so arrange your overnight accommodation, book those tickets, and prepare to be dazzled by the wondrous stage shows that the city has to offer this Christmas.
