Feel your spine tingle, your pulse race and your heart soar with joy. Over 90 million children and grown ups have been thrilled by this magical musical that tells the timeless tale of good triumphing over evil. Famous for its breathtaking visuals, stunning special effects and talented performers, this unforgettable show captivates young and old alike.


Simba is a lively young lion prince who has to face up to his destiny for the good of his people. Framed for the death of his father by his power-hungry uncle Scar, Simba is forced to flee. Under Scar’s rule the beautiful African savanna turns to misery and desolation.

Meanwhile Simba has made friends with the hilarious Pumbaa and Timon. Living in exile he is enjoying a life of fun and ease. But duty catches up with him. Only Simba can save the animals of the Pride Lands by asserting his rightful claim to the throne. He returns to confront Scar and finds true love along the way.


Lion King is one of the most family-friendly musicals around, holding universal appeal for all ages from 6 to 106 – although children under 3 aren’t allowed in.
The spectacular show runs for 2 hours 30 minutes which includes an interval.
Free booster seats are available – just ask on the day.
Drinks can be ordered at the start of the show to be ready for you in the interval.
In London, Lion King is staged at the Lyceum theatre in Covent Garden, which is close to dozens of great restaurants, cafes and mini-supermarkets for snacks.

Family Tickets top tip: Some of the characters come down the aisles during the show so you get really close to them. Book early to get the seats you want - Lion King is one of London’s most popular shows so tickets sell out quickly.
