Christmas in the West End

Christmas Shows in 2023 playing in London Theatres this festive season

Our guide to the best Christmas Shows playing in 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 Nutcracker at the London Coliseum, and The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre.

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.
