Acting for Others has announced the return of the West End Flea Market for 2024!

The event will take place on Saturday, 18 May 2024 at St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden from 10AM – 2PM. Entry is just £5 and there is limited capacity to the event.

Following last year’s most successful West End Flea Market to date, where they raised more than £70,000, the event returns for its fourth year.

West End shows will design stalls tailored by the company to celebrate their production. Each stall will be uniquely crafted with show-themed merchandise, special limited-edition collectables, theatrical memorabilia, signed posters and special items for auction.

This year shows represented include ATG Touring Productions, Cabaret, Disney on Stage including Frozen and The Lion King, Guys and Dolls, Go Live Theatre Projects, Hamilton, Hadestown, Les Misérables, Mamma Mia, Moulin Rouge, Mrs Doubtfire, Phantom of the Opera, SIX, Sister Act, The Book of Mormon, The Mousetrap and The Play that Goes Wrong.

Shows hosting a stall compete to win Best Dressed Stall, decided by a panel of starry judges including West End Flea Market regular Christopher Biggins and star of stage and screen, Harriet Thorpe with the winner announced at the event.

For the fourth annual market, West End Chairty Football Club will appear this year, with the star-studded team taking part in a penalty shoot-out to run throughout the event.

Other highlights include the return of Flea Market favourite Psychic Su Pollard who will be back to tell fortunes. There will be a chance to win VIP tickets to MJ: The Musical in the raffle, along with a tombola full of theatre tokens and theatrical memorabilia and guest appearances from Panto Dames, Pearly Kings and Queens and Puppeteers.

The autograph marquee will return inside the church with entry cost at £10, which includes a free West End Flea Market 2024 poster. Entrants will queue for each time slot and celebrity.

The stars signing autographs on the day include Luke Bayer, Christina Bianco, Christopher Biggins, Lesley Joseph, Bonnie Langford, Harriet Thorpe, Dianne Pilkington and Michael Xavier, with more to be announced in the lead up to this Saturday’s market.

West End Flea Market is organised in aid of Acting for Others, a fundraising organisation for 14 UK theatrical and welfare charities.
