★★★★★ “The genius is the pairing of Ian McKellen and John Bishop” Metro

Playing until 29th Jan, don’t miss Ian McKellen and John Bishop in a hilarious comedy for all ages – described by critic as “a total hoot” (★★★★★, Broadway World), “a solid gold hit” (★★★★★, The Stage) and absolutely “glorious” (★★★★★, Daily Telegraph).

Mother Goose is a live entertainment spectacle not to be missed – full of fun, musical comedy, star power and surprises that will make you honk out loud. This cheeky fairytale is exactly “the kind of knockabout entertainment that we all need” (The Times) and “infectious fun” (Time Out) from start to finish. 

So scramble for tickets to see two legends of acting & comedy “work beautifully as if they have been a double act for years” (London Theatre 1), and get ready for fairies with hefty vocal chords, puppets with tap dance qualifications and impeckably constructed mayhem that will quack up those aged between 3 to 103! Don’t be a goose – book your tickets now.

    This was the most fun you could have in an evening! The cast were incredibly talented, John and Ian were hysterical and the audience participation made the whole thing a fantastic night to remember. So much so that I may try to book again at one of the other venues in the run up to the show closing in April.
