In The Night Garden | Before You Book - Checklist And Video

Before You Book - Checklist And Video

Get ready to book the tickets you want at the best price possible!

Answer the questions below and get your tickets quickly and save money.

  1. Premium or Standard seats?
If you want to be close to the stage, choose Premium, and you’ll be seated in the front five rows of our seating stand. But don’t worry – there are only 13 rows of seats, so wherever you sit everyone gets a great view.

  2. Will you catch the Ninky Nonk or Pinky Ponk?
    There are two shows to choose from – the Ninky Nonk show (where Igglepiggle loses his blanket) and the Pinky Ponk show (where Makka Pakka washes everyone’s faces). All the main characters appear in both shows, so don’t worry if you’re not sure.

  3. When would you like to go?
    There are 4 shows a day at 10am, 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm. Each show lasts just under one hour. Performances are priced according to demand, so if you go at a less busy time (such as a weekday) it’ll cost less. All our 2018 tour dates and venues are listed on our homepage.

  4. How many performance tickets do you need?

    Every adult and every child who comes to see the show needs to have a ticket. Adult and child tickets cost the same. There are discount tickets for babies (under the age of 6 months at the time of their visit) accompanying an older child. It is only possible to buy a “+ baby” ticket when buying a child ticket.

  5. Would you like to preorder a Goody Bag?
    As soon as you’ve chosen your tickets, you’ll be given the option to preorder a Goody Bag. Goody bags are full of exclusive In the Night Garden toys and souvenirs you can’t buy anywhere else. Your Goody Bag will be worth a retail value of at least £60 for all the items combined.** If you buy your Goody Bag in advance it costs just £29. Or if you buy your Goody Bag on the day it will cost £39. We guarantee you’ll love it or your money back!

  6. Would you like to Meet a Character?
    After you’ve decided on your Goody Bag, you’ll be given the option to Meet a Character after the show. It costs £15 for a family of up to 5 people (max 3 children) - this includes a souvenir photo and story folder. You can meet Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, or both characters. If you meet both, your meetings will happen separately.

  7. Would you like Souvenir Gift Box delivery?
    Finally, there are 3 ticket delivery options to chose from:
    1. Choose Souvenir Gift Box and your tickets will arrive in a fun gift box with pop-up Igglepiggle and Upsy Daisy characters sent by Royal Mail 1st class post.

    2. Delivery by post costs £5 per order to have your tickets printed and posted to you in a plain envelope.

    3. Select e-tickets to receive your tickets by email - this option is free and you can print your tickets at home.

Remember, the earlier you book the less it costs. There are no booking fees online. Every ticket includes a Souvenir Activity Brochure worth £7, plus don't forget our flexible exchange policy

    Hi Clair - The square bar codes on your email are what need to be scanned at the door of the Showdome so it is important that these are clear and easily scanned. It's up to you if you want to print these or if you want to use your phone or alternative device just as long as the bar codes can be easily seen!

    I hope this information helps! We can't wait to see you and your two little ones at the show! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Joanne Renton - thank you for commenting, unfortunately we don't have any plans to visit the north east of England at the moment. This year we are visiting London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, so we really hope that you will be able to come along to one of these locations instead. If you haven't already, please do sign up to our mailing list so that we can keep you posted about future shows:
