Book Now For This Summer’s Favourite Family Show

This summer the In the Night Garden Live Showdome is coming to London, Birmingham, and Manchester from 26 May to 21 Aug - for a few weeks only!

In the Night Garden Live is a spectacular family-friendly stage show based on the hit CBeebies TV series. The show is now in its seventh year and almost 700,000 people have already seen it. 



Critics give rave reviews. The Mirror called it ‘the hottest ticket in town’, while The Sun wrote, ‘Fantastic! We can definitely recommend it!’. And 9 out of 10 parents give 5/5 stars in parents’ reviews and post-show surveys.

The show's producer Andrew Collier says ‘Children as young as a few months old engage with the live show, and the looks on the faces of the children and parents are absolutely amazing.’

In the Night Garden Live presents the chance of a lifetime for young fans to see their favourite characters in real life.

See Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka brought to life with beautiful costumes and puppets. Panoramic projections and enchanting music make it feel like you're actually inside the Night Garden.



In the Night Garden Live takes place in its own purpose-built Showdome. There are three domes altogether, which are a colossal 65m long, 35m wide and 14m high!

The largest dome hosts the theatre with full-size character costumes, puppets, breathtaking projections and a spacious seating stand. With just 13 rows of seats, you’ll be close to the action wherever you sit and everyone gets a great view! 

The other two domes are there to make your visit as easy and enjoyable as possible. Everything is really family-friendly, from the welcoming staff to ample buggy parking, microwaves, flushing toilets (with toddler steps and seat inserts) and baby-changing facilities.



Little ones love In the Night Garden Live because, as mum Jen Dear commented, it's ‘cleverly designed to entertain even the youngest of children’.

Gemma Ashbrook took her 7 month old along, ‘Because of his age I was worried he wouldn’t enjoy it. But he loved it, and his face at the end melted my heart! I can’t wait to take him next year.’ 

Another mum, Jacqueline Fenn, said simply, ‘The whole experience was so easy it made it a magical day.’ 



Almost 700,000 people have been so far, and 9 out of 10 parents give 5/5 stars . There are other shows for young children, but as The Independent wrote, ‘there’s nothing quite like In the Night Garden Live.’ 

You can book online now with no booking fees. . But hurry, seats are limited, and some performances have already sold out.
