Enjoy the London West End on a Leeds big screen

Written by

Do you love the theatre and other live performances that you find at London's West End – but can't be arsed with a lengthy journey to the capital? Cinema group Vue can offer a great compromise for a festive night out.

Both Vue Kirkstall Road and Vue The Light is offering customers the chance to watch some of the best live events taking place this month, either live streamed or screened to the big screen.

In December this includes shows from the Royal Opera House, Metropolitan Opera House, National Theatre and Kenneth Branagh's Theatre Company.

So, if you couldn't get a ticket to watch Benedict Cumberbatch's performance of 'Hamlet' or would feel self-conscious munching on nachos during 'The Nutcracker', this might just be the next best thing.

The following performances will screened at either one of the two cinemas in Leeds this December:

December 10 – Royal Opera House Live: 'Cavalleria/Pagliacci'

December 12 - Metropolitan Opera: 'The Magic Flute' (encore)

December 13 – Royal Opera House Live: 'Cavalleria/Pagliacci' (encore)

December 14 – Florence and the Uffizi Gallery

December 15 – National Theatre: 'Macbeth'

December 16 – Royal Opera House Live: 'The Nutcracker'

December 24 - Kenneth Branagh's Theatre Company: 'The Winter's Tale' (encore)

December 27 – Royal Opera House Live: 'The Nutcracker' (encore)
