Christmas Shows in 2023 playing in London Theatres this festive season

Our guide to the best Christmas Shows playing at London Theatres this holiday season.

There’s nothing like seeing a Christmas show in the West End during the festive holidays, so we’ve pulled together a wish list of great shows to see in London.

A number of shows are annual festive family favourites, none more so than English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum.

Christmas is not Christmas without some Panto, and the West End has plenty of star-studded choices, including the annual pantomime at the London Palladium – with more details coming soon.

Also check out Mark Gatiss’ thrilling and delightful show A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story at Alexandra Palace; the fun Dickens and Sherlock Holmes mash-up A Sherlock Carol at Marylebone Theatre; and Mischief Theatre’s award-winning, hilarious show Peter Pan Goes Wrong is coming back to London.

Note: we have taken the “Christmas season” as running from mid November to mid January
