Frozen the Musical

Frozen the Musical is set in the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London, just off Covent Garden.

If you have kids, especially girls, there is a good chance that you have been subjected to “Let it go” on repeat at some point in your life.

Frozen the Musical is every bit as magical as the animation, but better!

Don’t expect a re-run of the film on stage. The story has been adapted for the stage and although all songs from the original are in the show, some of the words have been altered and there are some brilliant new additions in there too – you will be singing Hygge all the way home!!

Horrible Histories – Terrible Thames

Enjoy a fabulous ride down the River Thames whilst learning about London’s history as told by the iconic Horrible Histories team.

Tremble in terror at the Tower! Sizzle at the Savoy! Give Cleopatra the needle! Be washed away at Westminster! Lose yourself in Lambeth! Get gobsmacked by the Globe! Hold onto your head at London Bridge and escape from Execution Dock!

Take a dive with Horrible Histories into the stories of King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Julius Caesar, Queen Boudicca, Jack the Ripper and Captain Kidd, in this history of the Thames with the nasty bits left in!

Matilda the Musical

Matilda the Musical has had a revival since the release of the film at the end of last year and is so popular in this house that we have seen it three times!

With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary little girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. This catchy musical will surely capture the hearts of all the family.
