Autumn is coming, the nights are drawing in and it’s time to think about cosy winter entertainments, like live theatre or a musical. If you live in London, it’s easy to enjoy the vast array of entertainment in the capital but if your home is out of town then you may feel it is too expensive to treat the family to one of the smash-hit shows.

However, if you look around you can find incredible show and hotel deals that will let you introduce the kids to the joys of live performance at affordable prices. And you don’t have to compromise on quality, the top companies will give you a choice of the best theatre seats and rooms in comfortable central London hotels.

Which are the best shows to take the family to this winter? Here’s a selection of six family favourites that everyone from kids to great grandparents can enjoy with one of the super-value show and hotel deals.

  1. A good list. Unfortunately The Wizard of Oz and Shrek have closed now but a great family show to take their place is Disney’s Aladdin – it opens in the summer of 2016 and I am sure it will be just as popular The Lion King.
