This show was the first show i'd seen in Theatre, and I'd be very surprised if any other could beat this! I was overwhelmed by the whole show, crying pretty much from start to finish just through amazement at the whole thing!

The cast, costumes, backdrops were amazing, breathtaking... A show that I will definitely be recommending to everyone, and a show i would happily go to see again!

Brilliant Show.

My husband & I wish to thank staff for their help with the wheelchair he uses.They were all such a great help & very kind.

We were at yesterdays matinee & were dubious about it all but shall always look to see what goes on at your theatre in future.

Many Thanks again.

Excellent show...fantastic/outstanding is absolutely amazing ...first time at any West End show and what a brilliant choice. Would highly reccomend.

The brilliant introduction was completely spoilt by the ushers constantly racing up and down the stairs shining torches at people who were taking photos.When I complained they were impeding my view and I was missing so much of the presentation, I was told that it was their job to protect the copyright.What about my enjoyment as someone who had paid a lot of money to see the show?As this was the most important part of the show, with amazing scenes, I felt really angry and it completely overshadowed the rest of the performance, having missed the opening scenes.

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.
