An open-air theatre will be in place in Trafalgar Square, where tens of thousands of fans will get a taste of the best of the best that the West (End) has to offer. More than 50 performances will pack the schedule over the weekend-long event. There’ll be crowd favourites, West End classics, and new hit shows. A who’s-who of West End royalty will be hosting the event, guiding the audience through the whirlwind of song and dance. Faye Tozer and Nathan Amzi will be introducing the acts on the Saturday. Sunday will then see Louise Dearman and Laura Pitt-Pulford taking over presenting duties.
