The West End’s Sunday shows not to be missed

Thanks to some recent additions to the theatre calendar, you can now schedule a visit to some of London’s most impressive venues for a Sunday show. Whether you’re in the capital for a weekend with a loved one or have some time to spare before taking the last train home, here are some of the Sunday shows you can’t afford to miss in the West End this year.

The beauty of Sunday shows

When you plan a trip to London, there is so much to see and do that time is very much of the essence. In fact, there aren’t enough hours in the day to see everything this fabulous city has to offer! So, squeezing all of your sightseeing and culinary experiences into your schedule can be tough, let alone planning a trip to the theatre to see a show. But now that Sunday shows are the norm in the West End, you have a larger window of opportunity.

Another great thing about Sunday shows is that you can experience London when it’s not overly busy. Weeknights and Saturdays tend to attract huge crowds, so planning a trip to the theatre on a Sunday can be a great way to get tickets for your chosen show much more easily. So, with that in mind, here are some of the brilliant productions you can tune into on Sundays:

Back To The Future

Who doesn’t love the story of Marty McFly and Doc? The stage adaptation is as much loved as the 1980s hit movie, and you can enjoy this family-friendly musical at the Adelphi Theatre. With a tantalising storyline and a glimpse into the past and the future, Back To The Future is one of the West End’s most popular shows.

Disney’s Frozen

As one of Disney’s most cherished productions, Frozen is a firm family favourite that tells Elsa’s story to perfection. With a Sunday show added to the lineup, you can take the kids along to the Drury Lane Theatre Royal for a wonderful showing of this timeless classic before heading home after a magical weekend in the capital.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child

Ever wondered what happens after the trio leaves Hogwarts? Well, The Cursed Child invites you into a world where Harry, Hermione, and Ron are adults, and their kids are running riot throughout the enchanted halls of the magical school. The story continues the magical world’s delicate balance between good and evil and introduces us to new and exciting characters that keep the magic alive.


Roald Dahl’s Matilda is another show that you can now catch on Sundays. Following the story of Matilda Wormwood, as she fights back against her oppressive parents and a dictatorial headmistress, we’re introduced to a true against-all-odds story that is fun, family-friendly, and filled with feel-good music. So, a Sunday trip to see Matilda at The Cambridge Theatre is a wonderful way to round up your weekend in the capital.

So, with such an impressive array of London shows now playing on Sundays in London’s West End, there’s no excuse not to schedule a trip to the theatre during your next trip to the capital. Discover all of the shows that are playing on Sundays, and book your tickets for your chosen production today.
