The West End is leading the charge with strict safety protocols and stringent measures to ensure casts, crews, and audiences are safe during the ongoing pandemic. If you’re looking to escape the real world for a few hours, enjoy a world-class show in a West End theatre.

The show must go on in London! But as shows take on increased risks, and with rising Covid cases, there are inevitably some performance cancellations. But one cancellation doesn’t mean all cancellations. Unlike 2020, there are still West End shows playing eight shows a week. Book tickets to West End shows this Christmas and beyond to still keep the happy holiday feelings.

So what West End shows are currently playing? We thought you’d never ask. Read more below to find out which shows are currently in performances.

West End shows currently playing tonight

There are so many shows currently in the West End.

Discover all the West End shows in performances below, and book your tickets now to ensure you’ve got the best seats in the house.
