I was disgraced by the manner in which my sister, who is wheelchair dependent, was treated by the Novello Theatre. They cancelled on us TWICE with minimal notice - apparently both times the wheelchair lift was broken. During the most recent cancellation the box office agent was rude and had little sympathy for the fact that, with only two days'... More

2nd visit to see this truly fabulous show. Different theatre to where I saw it the first time and the seats were reflective of the price we paid but the show was fantastic. If you love seeing an uplifting show, love Greece, love Abba and enjoy a good sing song then I'd thoroughly recommend it

Highly recommended musical! P.s. If you have time, just go get the tickets from the theatre itself on the day of the... More

I first saw mamma Mia years ago but wanted to see it this time with my husband. We had fabulous seats. The part of Donna was played by the Under study, let me tell you she was fantastic, what a lovely voice. It was just as wonderful the second time as the first time. At the end we were all... More

Mamma Mia is our favourite musical and we have seen it both here and abroad on numerous occasions from when it first opened at the Prince Edward theatre and then the Prince of Wales theatre, but this was the first time we had seen it at the Novello theatre. I was a little apprehensive as to whether the show was... More

Just about bulletproof entertainment, from a show where just about all the songs are so well known. Cast were enthusiastic and went through their story without a hitch. The audience was on their feet at the end and it is good to see people leave a theatre with a smile on their face,

I loved the film but the musical is so much better. The cast are superb and we also paid that little bit extra to get 4 th row seats in the stall which were just perfect. It's a must to go and see.

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
