The Tiger Who Came To Tea is David Wood’s adaptation of Judith Kerr’s award-winning picture book.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

For the first time ever, this much loved tale of a tiger creating tea time mayhem is brought vividly to life on stage in a show packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos. Expect to be surprised!

The Tiger Who Came To Tea is suitable for children aged three and above and is designed to develop literacy and listening skills.

Wood is a renowned children’s playwright who has written over 70 plays for children including Goodnight Mister Tom, Shaun The Sheep and numerous Roald Dahl.

NB: Extra performances now added on 2 & 3 Sep. Call box office for details.
