Thanks all. We had to book already so have gone for aisle seats about 9 rows back.
Agree PrinceofWaugh about prices- we could have had a week away in a cottage for the same price but this is MIL's treat so luckily we're not paying. The Lion King is included in Kid's Theatre Week though but you'll need to be quick!
Prisoner, it is touring so you may get cheaper seats at another theatre. In Bristol they were queueing around the block to get tickets but it was much more affordable. You could see if you could get a group together (10) for a block booking and save even more.
Lucky you, I'd give anything to be able to sit anywhere to see it!
I wanted to take DD for her 5th birthday (is her fav film), but absolutely could not afford it - can't believe they don't have kids prices for West End shows. Did you find any discounts (would love to know!!)
