This stunning masterpiece and Tony award-winning musical, based on the 1911 novel of the same name, returns to the West End for a one-night-only concert celebration.

But their quiet routine is turned upside down when young Mary Lennox (Darcy Jacobs) is sent to live with them following the death of her parents in India. She finds a secret walled garden hidden in the grounds and with the help of a few friends (Alex Thomas-Smith and Maiya Quansah-Breed) releases the magic and adventure locked inside it, changing their lives forever.
