Lion King

Disney’s The Lion King

Lyceum Theatre, London

The wait is over, Disney’s The Lion King returns to London this Summer

As the sun rises and the city reawakens, watch in awe as giraffes strut, gazelles leap and birds swoop bringing the Serengeti, and the story of Simba, to life all around you…

Using magical puppetry, costumes and sets, a dazzling world is brought to life in one of the most imaginative and beautiful musicals to ever be staged.

Featuring Oscar winning music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, Disney’s The Lion King is not to be missed.

Disney’s The Lion King is booking from 10 August 2021 until 3 April 2022 at the Lyceum Theatre, London.

What’s the Story?

Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney’s multi award-winning musical will redefine your expectations of theatre.

At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba – the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
