The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Based on Britain’s best-loved picture book by Judith Kerr, the Olivier Award nominated smash hit show The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the West End for Summer 2023.


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!

    This was by far the best show we have seen with my 5 year old. It was hilarious, both my son and I were fully engaged throughout the whole performance. The music, dances, tiger himself was absolutely top nodge. We keep singing the theme song still (7 days past our visit). My son wants to see it again, and I am tempted to say Yes!

    My 4yr old couldn’t stop roaring after we came out of the theatre. With catchy tunes, a counting clock, a loveable tiger, dancing and magic tricks. Absolutely super. A wonderful production with talented actors who brought the story to life perfectly.
