Due to the ongoing impact of Covid-19, it is with sadness that we have taken the decision to suspend all performances of THE LION KING until Spring 2021. This includes performances in London and on the UK tour, which was scheduled to begin its season at the Manchester Palace Theatre in October. We appreciate this change will cause disappointment and we very much look forward to seeing THE LION KING roar back on to UK stages in the Spring.

We have worked with our partners at Ambassador Theatre Group to reschedule the Manchester season and performances will now begin on Thursday 4 March 2021.

Audiences who hold tickets for the original 2020-2021 performances will automatically be issued a new performance date for the new engagement. Please use the calendar on this page to view your new performance date.

Where possible the same seats are held at the new performance as originally booked. If the date offered is not suitable, customers will be able to arrange an exchange into an alternative performance, subject to availability, or to request a ticket refund. Ticketholders will receive an email with full information on how to do this. If you are happy with your new date, there is no need for you to contact anyone, as your booking will be automatically transferred. Due to the volume of bookings involved, we would ask customers not to contact the box office until they have been assigned a new performance. We thank you in advance for your patience as we work through enquiries.
