London Overnight with The Lion King Musical 

Glossop Road entrance to Bar One • 9 November - 10 November, 9.30am

Join us as we head to London for a very special Give it a Go day trip in November. Enjoy the history, thrills and excitement of England’s Capital - London on this overnight stay. You could visit Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament, shop in Harrods, enjoy a walk in Hyde Park plus so much more. The fun does not stop there though, as included within the price of your ticket is a matinee performance of Disney’s The Lion King Musical at the Lyceum Theatre London. Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney’s multi-award winning musical The Lion King will redefine your expectations of the theatre. Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney’s beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular theatrical experience that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music. 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 the King of the Pridelands.

Prices start from just £150 per person (please note that all online prices are subject to a 10% booking fee. There is no fee when booking in person at the Box Office).
