It was my grandson's (4 years old) first theatre experience and overall, he found the play interesting. The only part where he felt really sad and cried was when the thieves were plotting to steal the prize cows.

Janet Andrews24th August

We really enjoyed the show but I was disappointed to realise that because I booked early and paid a full price of £29.50 for myself and my 4year old and my friend who booked the weekend before paid £24.50 for herself and had a free ticket for her 4yr old grandson. They sat in the row behind us in the dress circle. I was rather annoyed. i i

An excellent show for 3-6 year olds. Lasted about an hour and a quarter with breezy songs and consistent story line.


Money well spent! Really enjoyed it

Emma John17th August

This production was fabulous! Rooted in fantastic story-writing by Julia Donaldson but brought to life on stage with imagination, humour and age-appropriate interaction and engaging puppetry. Superb, would highly recommend it.

Fantastic story and multi-talented actors. My daughter and I really enjoy it. It is an unforgetable experience in London.

Everything was excellent!

Lynne Conlon9th July

Absolutely brilliant! Show was fantastic, my two and a half year old loved every second. Seats were perfect although I could have done with a booster for my child. She did manage to see everything though. Hope they will do "What the ladybird heard next". We will definitely come back to see that!
