Chickenshed lines up entertaining autumn

First Published 26 August 2010, Last Updated 26 August 2010

Inclusive theatre company Chickenshed continues to encourage youngsters to get performing this autumn with a series of Saturday morning workshops, its regular Tales From The Shed and a brand new festive show.

The hour-long Saturday morning workshops, available to two different age groups (6-8 and 9-11), allow young people to explore all aspects of performance through different themes each week. This autumn’s sessions focus on everything from musicals and street dance to the stories of Roald Dahl and the dance moves of Michael Jackson.

Also playing at Chickenshed this autumn is the company’s acclaimed production for children, Tales From The Shed. An interactive storytelling session for children under seven, Tales From The Shed encourages creativity while working to improve literacy, numeracy and communication skills. 

Tales From The Shed and the Saturday morning workshops run from 10 September to 30 October, before Chickenshed gears up for its seasonal show, Badjelly’s Bad Christmas, which plays from 1 December to 15 January.

A celebration of some of Spike Milligan’s best-loved characters, Badjelly’s Bad Christmas tells the story of a pair of squabbling sisters who battle against Badjelly the witch’s attempts to take the fun out of Christmas by turning nonsense into sense.

To book any of the autumn’s shows and workshops visit the Chickenshed website.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
