We're delighted to announce the award-winning musical The Lion King will embark on a second UK and Ireland tour. The Lion King opened in Bristol in September 2019, with subsequent 2020 seasons scheduled for Edinburgh, Cardiff, Bradford, Southampton and Manchester. Other cities will be announced in due course, and to hear about further cities and dates click here.
Ticket prices are from £20, subject to availability, and will be dispatched around a month before the performance date. If you haven't received your tickets within 48 hours of the performance, please contact Guest Services.
The Lion King is recommended for those aged 6 or above. Children under the age of 3 will not be permitted into the theatre. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. All guests aged 16 or under must be seated next to an accompanying adult.
The show lasts approximately two and a half hours, including one interval. Strobe lighting is used throughout the show, and the use of cameras and recording equipment is strictly prohibited. We recommend Guests arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime.
Cast and creatives can be found at www.thelionking.co.uk
UPDATE: Performances in Manchester will now take place from Thursday 6 May – Sunday 26 June 2021. All guests who hold tickets for performances will be contacted directly by email about their booking from Wednesday 20 January.
As this season will now be several weeks shorter than planned, some guests will have been allocated a new performance date or have had their seats changed in order to accommodate their booking. If your booking has been moved into seats priced differently to your original booking, this may result in a small refund which will be processed automatically. If any of the changes are not suitable for you, we will endeavour to transfer you to an alternative performance/different seats where possible, or offer a full refund. Details of how to request changes will be sent to guests once their new performance date has been allocated. To help us work through all requests as efficiently as possible, please don't contact us until after you’ve received your new confirmation email.
We sincerely thank everyone for their ongoing support and understanding. We look forward to joining together to hear the buzz of the auditorium as we take our seats, listen to the orchestra strike the first notes and watch the curtain rise.
