The Tiger


Following the Prime Minister’s press conference on Monday afternoon (16/03/2020), that stipulated that people should avoid public buildings including theatres, the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and UK Theatre member venues announced that all of their venues will be closed to the public immediately, to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

As a result of this, it is with great sadness that we are announcing that the 2020 UK tour of The Tiger Who Came to Tea is to cease immediately, until at least the 20th of April. 

If you have purchased tickets for any of our tour venues between now and the 20th April, the box office will be in contact with you to discuss your options. 

We hope to reschedule all performances for a later date and bring our tea-guzzling Tiger back to see you once we are able to. Stay safe out there, and please consider supporting your theatre and the arts in general throughout this unprecedented time of difficulty that we are all facing.


The Tiger Who Came to Tea heads back out on tour in 2020, celebrating over 10 years on stage and over 50 years as Britain’s best-loved 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!

Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem... expect to be surprised!
