About West End LIVE
West End LIVE is organised by Westminster City Council and Society of London Theatre. The aim of the event is to increase West End theatre ticket sales by showcasing live performances free of charge and to bring people into the West End.
The event takes place in Trafalgar Square, the largest outdoor venue available to Westminster City Council free of charge within the City of Westminster. Its location allows top West End shows to perform around their matinees and evening performances.
It cannot be moved to a Royal Park which are not owned by the council due to many reasons including other events taking place throughout the summer, hire fees and the prohibitive cost and resources of rigging, planning and stewarding a larger venue.
West End LIVE is funded by the council and sponsors. Without their support, the event could not take place. Part of the sponsorship deal is space in the guest enclosure, where the theatres, performers and production companies who perform free of charge, are also hosted to watch their shows.
West End LIVE will remain non-ticketed to ensure the venue reaches capacity and to bring free performances to as many people as possible. We will not ticket the event as drop-out rates for free events are high and many people drop in to see specific shows rather than stay for the full event meaning the venue would not reach capacity. As a public body and not a commercial organisation, we will not be implementing a charge for West End LIVE.
