I enjoyed this show. Very creative and Great effects, I was never bored though this show always things going on, top show I'd recommend it to anybody. Only downside is there wasn't much leg room in theatre over then that was excellent and great fun.

On the 17 th of August 2012 i was in London for a holiday from Malta and i came to see the Lion King . I enjoyed every minute of it . When you see all the actors so brilliant and giving more than 100% it was amazing. Once in a life time you have to attend a musical especially i recommend the Lion King .

Keep it up and good luck for the future .

Went to see this on the jubilee weekend. I must say it was the highlight of the weekend. Stunning costumes and make up, fantastic music and an absolutely awesome atmosphere. It truly is a spectacle to behold. If you never go to see another musical again you must see this one. Well worth the money.

I had waited a long time to see this, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! It was pure Africa-the sounds, the colour and the amazing voices- it was just wonderful! Thankyou to everyone involved, from the players right throught to the lighting etc- a sheer joy!!!

Thanks to an amazing cast, fantastic orchestra and the most brilliant theatre set I have ever seen. You completely forget the animals are actually puppets the cast merge with them so well, hyenas and giraffes were my favourites, I laughed and cried. Just a magical afternoon. Would love to have heard more of Mustafa's voice was fab! Thank you to you all x
