For those amongst us who haven't seen the ads in the London papers or on the tube, West End Live returns to Leicester Square this coming Saturday and Sunday. Featuring the cream of the West End along with London Gay Men's Chorus (on Saturday at 4pm).

I absolutely love this event but wish that a venue other than the cramped gardens in the middle of Leicester Square could be found to showcase West End musical theatre. I accept that it is a central location and this enables the casts to get back to theatre's at a double quick pace but.....!

To be honest Saturday looks the better day of the two and understandably given that Sunday for many is their day of rest.

Enjoy whatever day you go. This is a great free festival.

Great, for the third year in a row I can't go. Instead I'll be doing Exhibition Road Music Day with zero audience as they'll all be at West end Live.

I'll be there on the Saturday. There must be somewhere in Leicester Square I can get my dad a Fathers' Day pressie. I might just get him a keyring with a phonebox on and a couple of stand-up comedy flyers.

"even if my seat is 100% SHIT!"

That's OK, so're the lighting design, set design, and about 85% of the book. And minimum a third of the score if your musical tastes don't fall under "shrieking queen."

Oh dont worry, shrieking queen is the best way to describe the whole my itunes library... actually, you could probably use it to describe my life!

CONaries, every seat at "Priscilla" is 100% SHIT - that way they ensure everyone goes back at least once!

Well at least you'll be able to see the stage (that's the best I can offer).

In the queue now, I think the rain scared off the really early campers that were here last year. I'll be down by the gated fountain barring issues so I can rest my camera arm on it so stop by and say hi when here. I've got an England odi shirt and Ifc hat - and my rockin timbuk2 rucksack as always.
