Tall Stories’ musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Room On The Broom invites families on a magical adventure they won’t soon forget!

Meet Witch and her cat. They’re on a mission to defeat a dragon – and in this spectacular adaptation of the classic picture book, there’s plenty of Room On The Broom.

Along the way, Witch will pick up a number of hitch-hikers – a friendly dog, a beautiful green bird and a crazy frog. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK – it snaps in two… just as the hungry dragon appears!

Room On The Broom is performed by the critically acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories, whose previous family shows include the likes of The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child, Emily Brown And The Thing, The Snail And The Whale, and The Snow Dragon.

The cast includes Amy Harris as ‘Witch’; Emma Crowley-Bennett as ‘Cat’; Charlie Guest as ‘Dog’ and ‘Frog’; Andrew Mudie as ‘Bird’ and the ‘Dragon’; and Alastair Chisholm completes the cast as understudy and Assistant Stage Manager.

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, Room On The Broom is the Olivier Award nominated family show that’s toured Britain and the world!


Age Recommendation: 3+. Children under 18 months are admitted free of charge and do not require a ticket. i
