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!

Kids loved it, it was sweet sorry great actors. On top of everything we had our seats upgraded which made the whole thing even better experience. Thank you very much xx

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.

Disappointed the tiger didnt speak at all also there were times it was abit boring, could have done with some background music to make it more fun

I took my family to watch this. My youngest son has SEN and was the first time in a theatre for him. He sat quietly throughout and enjoyed the performance.

The play was good for small children the actors/ actresses were engaging and played their roles well. I would say we were a little disappointed that the tiger didn't talk as my 3 yr old daughters favourite part of the book to "read" is when the tiger arrives and says "excuse me but I'm very hungry etc.." the actions of the tiger were a little strange as well the way that it walked my 7 year old found highly amusing

This was the first time I took kids and my parents to watch theatre and the experience was great. The performers were engaging and the staff even kindly upgraded our seats so we could all seat together. I enjoyed every moment of the show and so did my kids.

I took my 12 month old and he enjoyed the whole thing and had so much. He adored watching the “Tigi” (tiger) dancing and made him laugh!

We had a really nice moment, even our 3 years daughter who was scared of the tiger and spent half of the show hiding under her seat XD

My son is a fan of the story and he went to see the Hungry Caterpillar last year and enjoyed the theatre experience so we wanted to take him to see this show. He absolutely loved it and even joined in with the crowd. We as a family highly recommend seeing this.

Great production of Tiger who came to Tea. Engaging, interactive and the perfect length of show to keep children entertained. Our daughter enjoyed singing along to the various songs, copying the actions of the cast and especially the tik tok of the clock. Well done to all 4 stars of the show, thorighly enjoyed by children and parents.

We have left the show after 15 min - the jokes were basic, the actors were not great, too loud - my daughter did not like it at all.

What a lovely show for children and adults included! Our granddaughter loves this book and was totally enthralled from start to finish. The theatre is just the right size for this sort of production and all the staff were kind and attentive too.

Tengo que decir que ha sido una experiencia maravillosa!! Mi pequeño de 5 años la disfruto muchisimoooooo ya que nos habíamos leído el cuento y se lo sabía de memoria. Los actores estupendos. A la hora de cantar me parecieron voces estupendas y armoniosas. El audio estupendo. El teatro muy cómodo aunque tengo q decir que a la hora de pagar por el merchandaising solo se podía en tarjeta. No cash. Por todo lo demás genial.
