Due to overwhelming demand for Cats Theatre Breaks, the show will now return to the London Palladium in October 2015 for a strictly limited winter season.
Don’t miss the return of the critically acclaimed, 2015 Olivier award-nominated production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s CATS at the London Palladium for a strictly limited season until 2 January 2016, starring the Queen of British Soul, Beverley Knight, as Grizabella.
On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

Totally SCHAMAZING. We saw it back in December 2014 when Nicole Scherzinger was playing Grizabella the Glamour Cat and she was brilliant singing Memory like it belong to her and her alone. Elaine Paige... who???
This is the 3rd time I've seen Cats - the fist two time being the original production at the the New London theatre and a touring production many moons ago. I love the show so was very excited when it was announced that it was going to come into the West End again.
It did not disappoint one iota. Highly recommended for a family theatre trip.
