Parents Would Definitely Recommend In the Night Garden Live!


Some of our biggest In the Night Garden Live fans are parents! To find out why, we talked to mums and dads after the show and made this short video.

Parents give several reasons why they enjoy it so much. They often start with how their child was “mesmerised”, or how they’d never seen their child sit still for so long.

Mums particularly love watching the look of delight on their child’s face when their favourite character comes on stage. If Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends are really important to your little one, this can be the moment that brings a tear to your eye!

In the Night Garden Live is cleverly designed for all ages, so young babies enjoy it as well as older children. We often hear from parents who worried their child may be too young for a show, but they absolutely loved coming to In the Night Garden Live.


Parents also mention the memories they make at In the Night Garden Live are something to “cherish forever”.

See why one mum in this video is so “happy” to have seen her child “enjoying himself so much”, and another talks about how much fun it was to see her kids’ “excited” faces.

Children grow up fast and it’s not often that you can do something really special that both parents and very young children enjoy together. So many parents describe this experience as something they will never forget.

It bought a tear to my eye to see their faces light up when the characters came on. Lovely photos to treasure, taken some very happy memories away, a first class family day out for us, thank you so much :))))))

    Another brilliant show, thank you to all who are involved in the production. We took our granddaughter Ava to Manchester last year (2015) and this year we took Ava and her 8 month old sister Olivia, once again brilliant from the moment you enter through the doors. All staff were friendly and helpful and entertained the kiddies while queuing to enter the showdome. Our girls thoroughly enjoyed the show from beginning to end and then meeting Igglepiggle and UpsyDaisy just finished the visit off wonderfully. Thank you again

    My son is 3 and a half and has asd and is non verbal. I explained when we showed our tickets that he could have a meltdown as he's not good with waiting and we may need to leave during the show. The staff went out of their way to give us end seats. My son absolutely loved the show and was on his feet the whole time. We will definitely go again next year. Can't thank the staff enough for understanding our situation. Would highly recommend this show to anyone.

    Hi Chantelle - thanks for your comment. We tend to find that if your little one enjoys In the Night Garden on the TV, then they will enjoy the live show just as much! Lots of parents of very young children have said how much they enjoyed the show and engaged with it. You can find their comments on our reviews pages: Please do contact us if you have any questions!

    I would love to take my little boy who will be 13 months old at the time of the event, I was wondering if he is too young to enjoy the show?
  • Rachelle, 23/06/2014 3:10pm (10 years ago)

    My 20 month old son loved the live show at the 02 and he was jumping up and down and clapped his hands and kept pointing. He was so excited. He particularly liked the tombliboos. We will definately see it again next year :-)

    Wow what a great time we had today. My grandson aged 2 1/2 laughed, danced, and clapped. He showed daddy and grandad when we got home how iggle piggle lost his blanket. Really good and worth it. Definitely will go again.
