After its roaring success back in 2019, Disney’s Lion King will be returning to Bristol Hippodrome with a five-week run from Thursday 17 February, through to Saturday 19 March 2022.

With many Gloucestershire families making the trip down the M5 for the musical last time it was in Bristol, this new five-week run is likely to be popular with locals once again.

Reimagined by director Julie Taymor, the Disney classic has been transformed into an explosive stage production, featuring fan favourite songs such as ‘The Circle of Life’ and ‘I Just Can’t Wait to Be King’; with special effects and plenty of Disney magic too.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 24 September 2021 at 10am. For more information, and to book tickets, call Bristol Hippodrome on (0844) 8717615.
