London Theatre Shows in December 2024

If you want to enjoy some wintry entertainment this month, Christmas shows in London are perfect for getting into the festive spirit. The shimmering, pirouetting angel on top of the tree is The Nutcracker at London Coliseum; this magical ballet has played in the West End for over 50 years. Elf the Musical is another seasonal show that’s fantastic escapism for all the family, and for younger children Father Christmas Needs a Wee! and The Gruffalo’s Child are the perfect introduction to live theatre.

Christmas entertainment isn’t the only thing available this month! My Neighbour Totoro returns to the Barbican Theatre for a second year, whilst drama fans can catch The Motive and the Cue with Mark Gatiss, dark comedy The Unfriend with Lee Mack, or the final performances of Lyonesse with Lily James and Kristen Scott Thomas.
