Wicked, the West End and Broadway musical phenomenon that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, will return to London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre later this year, with performances resuming on Wednesday 15 September 2021. 

Tickets for this booking period, which runs through to Sunday 22 May 2022, go on sale at 10am on Monday 17 May 2021. Wicked will play a Tuesday-Sunday performance schedule, with matinees on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Visit for all information.

Wicked will mark its 15th anniversary at the Apollo Victoria Theatre later in the year and will host a celebratory performance on Tuesday 28 September 2021.

The music and lyrics in Wicked are by the legendary composer Stephen Schwartz (whose enduringly popular musical Godspell celebrates its 50th Anniversary on 17 May 2021), with a book by Winnie Holzman (creator of the landmark American television series My So-Called Life). It is based on Gregory Maguire’s multi-million-copy bestseller, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Soon to celebrate its 15th Anniversary in the West End, the iconic musical has already been seen by over 10 million people in London alone and played almost 6000 performances. Winner of over 100 major international awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy Award and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (including three for ‘Best West End Show’), Wicked is already the 9th longest-running West End musical of all time. 

Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of Wicked said today: “Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s wondrous musical version of Gregory Maguire’s darkly brilliant fable is an allegory for, and of, our times. After the challenging year faced by everyone in our company, we are grateful to them for their resilience and patience and delighted that we can, at last, get back to telling this extraordinary story again. We look forward to audiences returning to Oz and to creating more unforgettable memories for everyone.”

The huge and enduring success of Wicked in London has seen the musical become a fundamental component in the cultural ecology of Victoria, playing a pivotal role in the health of the area’s leisure and hospitality landscape. Wicked draws in audiences from across the UK (as well as internationally) and helps to ensure Victoria remains an outstanding cultural destination The full cast will be confirmed at a later date. 

Wicked has music and lyrics by multi-Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, The Prince of Egypt; Disney’s Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enchanted) and is based on the novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman. Musical staging is by Tony Award-winner Wayne Cilento with direction by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello. 

All future performances will take place under Step 4 of UK Government protocols (all legal limits on social contact removed). Each performance will operate in full compliance with any Government and/or industry COVID-19 safety guidelines as applicable.

Notting Hill's Instagrammable Locations

As it’s Easter weekend we decided to get out and about and explore Notting hill in London,
well known for the Notting hill carnival, portobello road market and its amazing instagrammable locations. We caught the central line tube to Holland Park station and within a short eight-minute walk we arrived at the much loved photographed spot of Stanley crescent.

Stanley Crescent is well known and photographed location due to its blooming pink blossom tree, it was a very busy location with influencers dressed in impressive tutus and pink dresses trying to capture that perfect shot, we could see why people would travel to this location and it was stunning, with the large white house and the contrast of the pink blossoms what wasn't there to like, an amazing corner of London to strike that pose. A frequented location for those wanting to a small oasis of beauty in the middle of London. 

We then made our way to portobello road on our route we passed some stunning homes full of colourful facades which defiantly deserved to be photographed, a must-have capture is outside Alice’s antique shop which was used as a film location for Mr Gruber's antique shop in the movie Paddington Bear 2. 

We headed to Denbigh Terrace here you will find an array of beautiful pastel homes which is great to capture those much-loved insta worthy shots.  Our next destination was Kensington park road when we stopped to buy a Jolly Ginger at Biscuiteers, a much-loved treat in our family, but often we order online so it was great to actually visit the shop in person. Biscuiteers is a beautiful looking shop both inside and out so defiantly worth a visit.

Our final destination of the morning was Luke Mews, here we bumped into a couple of lovely ladies who were also taking pictures, she kindly offered to capture us outside this stunning row of houses, we simply couldn't refuse.

Luke Mews is known for the stunning pink house. Notting Hill has so many amazing places that every photographer would love to capture and most Instagram influencers would be more delighted to share on their feed. We recommended going early morning to avoid the crowds and take a slow walk around the streets, these are just some of the locations, but if you explore you will certainly find more.

Missing London Life

Like most, we are missing the normal life we once had, over the past few weeks, we have been taking long walks through London not only to stay active but also check in on each other and catch up, defiantly what we both have needed.

Walking through London now is a million miles away to what it once used to be, the streets are quiet and empty with very few people around, but it really gives you the chance to step back and take in what we have all been through refect and feel the gratitude of life and family.

We walked to Covent Garden the once vibrant market and busy streets were quite, we reminisced about the days we spent there and how much we missed the market the street entertainers and The Transport Museum (they do an awesome breakfast in their cafe).

Our hearts truly are humbled by what we have seen and felt over this past year, taking time to talk and reflect has been a medicine to our souls, we long for busy streets and happy faces, the joy of theatre and peaceful galleries filled with stunning art in all their glory. The smell of coffee and the hustle of the busy coffee shops. We miss London life and cannot wait to feel the joy that you will bring. For now, we will reflect and be patient on the return to life as we once knew it.
