Came to watch this with my 8 year old son. We both absolutely loved it. Opening scenes were magical and brought out emotions I was definitely not expecting. Beautifully done and great for all ages

5.0 star rating James from London, England


I have to admit, I was not a fan of the Lion King so was not expecting to leave the theatre wishing I could see the show again. The actors were remarkable, the set was beautiful and I dare you not to get emotional when “He lives in you” is performed, the changing set at that point is purely magical. Go see this, you will not be disappointed

we went to see Lion king 26.08.2022 i could not believe how brilliant this show is and after watching the dvds for years with my children it was quite emotional to watch this in theatre absolutely outstanding show , i would without a doubt book again to see it because it was so good, the only negative thing was that the people who came in late sat talking and then proceeded to take pictures through the show very of putting, but because you are watching the cast you was able to ignore them most of the time, finally as this was a package bought with dinner i would not recommend the Delaunay restaurant to eat as they seem to penalise you for pre paying, luckily LION KING was worth the disappointment and i will be coming back Thank you to the cast for their outstanding Performance make this a must see show on your to do list of theatres

Omg what amazing show well worth the money and the 2 year wait due to covid only down fall is the seats really uncomfortable and very limited leg room but the show and the actors and actresses were fantastic

5.0 star rating Julie Chambers from Skelmersdale, England


Hubby and I saw the lion king at the Lyceum in July and was very disappointed with it as Mufasa's voice wasn't strong enough, we have seen the theatre show at least 8 times if not more, sorry Mufasa! Today my hubby and I took our 6yr old granddaughter to see the Lion King at Manchester as part of her Christmas present, she said 'it was incredible, can.we come again the day after tomorrow!' We have to agree with her it really was incredible, amazing from the second it started to the second it finished, absolutely amazing and can't wait till next time

epic WONDERFUL Magical

Bringing such an epic landscape to life on the stage is quite a feat of creative skill that has yet to be matched anywhere else on stage.
