More news, no ads


Arguably one of the best childrens’ books ever written is coming to life this Easter.

Children and grown ups are bound to be captivated by the charming tale of the Tiger Who Came to Tea as it is brought to the South Holland Centre’s stage.

Direct from the West End, the Olivier Award nominated smash hit show is a musical play adapted and directed by David Wood OBE and based on the much loved book by Judith Kerr.

Bound to enthral audiences of all ages, the Tiger Who Came to Tea is celebrating 12 years on stage and more than 50 years as Britain’s best-loved picture book.

The play uses magic and illusion to create the impression that the Tiger is eating everything.

There are three actors who play a number of roles.

There’s Sophie and Mummy, plus Daddy, who also plays the milkman, the postman and... the Tiger too.

For those who don’t know the story, it all begins when the doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea.

Who could it possibly be at the door? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

David Wood OBE is undisputedly the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. His many successes include The Gingerbread Man, The Witches and Babe the Sheep Pig, so it could be said that he knows that he is doing!

Join the tea-guzzling Tiger in this delightful family show, described by Time Out as “a delight from start to finish’ packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos.

Show dates and times are: Tuesday, April 5, at 1:30pm and 4pm, Wednesday, April 6, at 11am and 2pm.

Don’t miss this stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem... and expect to be surprised!

Running time is approximately 55 minutes, without an interval and is suitable for children aged 3+.
