IGGETY ZIGGETY ZAGGETY ZOOM!
Join the Witch and her cat on their mission to defeat the dragon in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
The Witch and her cat are travelling on their broomstick when they pick up some hitch-hikers - a friendly dog, a beautiful green bird and a crazy frog. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and - CRACK - it snaps in two... just as the hungry dragon appears!
Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the Olivier Award nominated show that’s toured Britain and the world!

My toddler absolutely loved the show and we had a "Room on the Broom" reincarnations at our house ever since :-) Huge thank you from my little daughter to the Witch and the Cat and the Frog and the Dog and the Bird who's definitely "still got it"!
A wonderful show, using all the best theatre trickery and creativity of a four man show. My 6 yr olds only criticism was that the witches hat should have been pointier!
Booked to take my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter to see the show as part of her Christmas gifts. She was mesmerised loved every minute of the show, joined in with all the appropriate parts even clapping while the cast sang. She came out asking when our next show is. My only criticism is the inappropriate snack selections, small loo cubicals when you have little ones to help. I felt I was in magician mode fit in them
It's an incredibly great book to read but the 1 hour show is excellent, very innovative, creative, uplifting, funny and good humour for both adults and children. We took my 3 and a half daughter (who never sits still) but she was mismerised and loved all the characters. The costumes and the actors and actresses were amazing. Would highly recommend and have now booked The Gruffalo.
I took my 6 year old Granddaughter. We thought the production was very good. Even a few little comments just for the adults. I thought the 4 actors did very well and it was a fun time for us all.
We took our 3 year old and we all really enjoyed it. We particularly liked the American frog! All songs were good too - is there any way to download them?
Brilliant show the whole family loved it. Great that there was some crowd interaction too which the children really enjoyed.
I went with my 3 year old and 5 year old and other half. We had a great time and the actors and actresses were brilliant. A great show for little ones we really enjoyed it
Wonderful show, talented cast......loved the puppets. The children in the audience just loved the interaction and stayed engaged all the way through. Disappointing promotion counter...sold out of many items....and where were the wands?
My granddaughters are 4 & 5 and they love the book, so I thought this show would be a nice Christmas present for them. They were so excited when we arrived and they saw what was on. They loved it and talked about different parts all the way home and told mum & dad all about the show. They want to take mum to see it!
Took my three year old son and the fifteen year old son came too as studying drama gcse and because both of us are big kids! The production was great. Brilliant songs. Would watch again.
I was incredibly disappointed that the Broomstick never actually flew! This was our first theatre experience where the children around us seemed uninterested and as a result were noisy. I can't remember one song from the play and only watched it on Monday. The 'camping' story line was confusing... I thought the actors did a good job with what they had but I haven't recommended this to anyone (unlike The Gruffalo, Stick Man and Tiddler and other Terrific Tales)
A very good show with audience interaction, a minor hiccup with a broken microphone was fixed quickly and my daughter really enjoyed the songs. We loved it!
I take my daughter to the theatre a lot. Unfortunately this was one of our least enjoyable experiences despite being based on a book she loves. There was far too much of the actors talking over each other, which meant the children couldn’t follow the action easily. As a result there was a lot of grouchy children all around us which made the experience less enjoyable.
Lovely adaption of the book. Cleverly portrayed with the use of both puppets and actors. My 5 yr old niece said that the only bad thing about the play was that it was too short!
If you love the book you will love this performance ! Enjoyable show for children and adults.
Lowest budget production I have ever seen. No props. No set. Took my 6 and 3 year old and would rather have watched paint dry. Don’t waste your money.
Very good thank you we all enjoyed it very much
Earlier this year we went to watch The Tiger Who Came to Tea and loved it. It was true to the book and the costumes were great. Having paid the same amount for The Room on the Broom we expected a similar experience. Rather than puppets, costumes would have perhaps worked better. Our 2 year old loves the book and I think he initially struggled to register he was watching TROTB. There were quite a few ratty children who weren't interested in the show and we noticed a fair few people leave well before the end of the show. The same group are also in theatre with The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child but we think we'll give it a miss.
We took our 9 and 7 year old girls and although we love all the books, we thought the girls were probably a bit too old... but no, great fun! We all really enjoyed the show!
We really enjoyed the show. Such a clever performance with lots going on to keep everyone amused. My 4 year old granddaughter was enthralled from start to finish and even my 9 year old grandson was joining in when he thought nobody was looking! Fabulous!
This was my 6 year old daughters first experience of a London theatre and she absolutely loved it, she now wants to see others. Cast were fabulous and really funny. Just long enough for the younger audience.
All five of us loved the show on Saturday! The show was full of plenty of laughs for the kids, and adults too. The songs were fantastic too. The kids were thrilled when the dragon walked off the stage towards them, so much fun! Thank you, another job well done!
We all thoroughly enjoyed the show. We would highly recommend
A very funny show for adults and children alike. Enjoyed the creativity and the story adaption.
Brilliant show! Great entertainment for the whole family. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves the room on the broom story.
My daughter loved it!
So happy to be able to share our experience with you all! This was a trip with two grandparents and twin boys of 3 years.. not easy you may think! And you'd be right! We have previously taken the boys to shows .. Peppa Pig - Snail and Whale and were not expecting a problem with a favourite story Room on the Broom...However we had not taken into account the notion of an 'actual witch, or dragon' being in close proximity to our darling boys.. we were after all in the very front seats! So, the boys refuse to sit down, too close too dark, an owl hooting! What could we do? Coats bags, odd toy spare clothes you name it we needed it (anybody in charge of a child knows you need a caravan!) We thought we'd have to leave. But the most amazing magical thing happened.. Staff came to the rescue! Offering seats further back.. We tried, still no go. Seats in a box especially for us.. still no go. How about listening from a stairwell? Almost.. Then the show started, we poked our heads around the door... They were just people on stage! Dressed like the story book characters! Tentatively we sat down, dress circle right at the back.. then we moved lightly further along.. music, acting, puppets! Fantastic - boys started joining in - singing dancing clapping FABULOUS hour spent in the theatre. Towards the end staff bought our bags coats and caravan from the box to our seats - How wonderful.. We cannot thank them or recommend the Manager and staff highly enough!
Took my 12 year old daughter and my cousin. It was an excellent performance but sadly view badly obscured by tall people sitting in front of children, many other people had the same issue.
My daughter enjoyed it but I would prefer if it was more interactive
Fantastic show! Great adaption of the book. Acting, singing was amazing. Really enjoyable. View wasn’t great of the stage in the Upper circle for small children. My daughter is almost 5yrs old and tall for her age but she couldn’t see well, she had to kneel on her seat and then sat on my lap. As an adult I struggled!
