The Lion King Musical Celebrates its 20th Anniversary at King’s Cross Station

Passengers were treated to a transformation of King’s Cross Underground Station to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Lion King musical in London’s West End. Impromptu performances, displays of costumes and props and more greeted travellers at a station totally transformed for the occasion. Even Rafiki got in on the act – providing the voice for tannoy announcements!

Links Signs were proud to partner with Shine Creative Solutions and Transport for London to turn the station into Lion King’s Cross for the celebrations. Throughout the station, we brought Shine’s creative designs to life with vibrant digitally printed large format vinyl graphics. All manner of surfaces and areas at the station were transformed. From suspended signage rebadged for the event, to column wraps, hoarding graphics and floor vinyls. Even the stairs were treated to a temporary face-lift! No make-over could be complete without some creative licence with the iconic King’s Cross roundel. The roundel above the stairs leading down to the ticket hall was temporarily rebadged as Lion King’s Cross.

Perhaps the most stunning of the eye-catching displays was in the western ticket hall, where glass overhead panels along three sides of the area were covered in alternating designs. Even the lift was given The Lion King treatment with massive vinyl graphics covering two walls of the lift area.

As well as printing the graphics, Links Signs also undertook all of the installation work at the station. Working to a tight reveal deadline, our dedicated team of expert and fully-accredited installers were able to install all of the graphics throughout the station in the space of a single night.
