All the world’s a stage, but no stage is quite so iconic as London’s West End. After a rather turbulent period, it’s lights, camera, action as the show goes on once again. And aren’t we glad? 
Set against those red velvet curtains, an evening of theatricality is the perfect setting for any man to saunter into the spotlight and unleash his inner showman.
It’s the perfect opportunity to forget life beyond the four walls – until a brief intermission involving a chat and a dry martini, of course. 

Just try not to say ‘Macb*eth’ now will you, old chap?


Jersey Boys

Olivier and Grammy award-winning show, Jersey Boys, returns to the West End in its full glory. Going beyond the music and into the story, Frankie Vallie and The Four Seasons come to life on stage in perfect harmony with a stunning back story.


America’s Founding Father lands in London with this award-winning Broadway musical. Bringing history to life with a score of jazz, blues and hip-hop, no toe is left untapped from the stalls to the Royal circle. 

Les Miserables

West End’s longest running musical is adapted from the epic novel by Victor Hugo. Set in 19th century France, the show follows a narrative of sacrifice and redemption against a backdrop of revolutionaries fighting for freedom.

The Great Gatsby

The roaring 20s return to host the ever so admirable, Mr J Gatsby. Music is swinging and gin is flowing as the audience delights over F Scott Fitzgerald’s American novel. What better way to escape from the bustling streets of London than to flee a century back to West Egg.

The Mousetrap

Agatha Christie continues to delight audiences with her legendary ‘whodunnit?’ Set in the countryside of England, a group of people gather to discover they have a murderer in their midst. Running since 1974, this evocative play inspires the sleuths in us all.
