This summer the world’s only In the Night Garden Live Showdome is coming to Birmingham from 7 July to 22 July - for two weeks only! On this page you’ll find everything you need to plan a great day out at In the Night Garden Live! The show takes place in its own purpose-built, family-friendly Showdome on Cannon Hill Park.
The Showdome is at the south end of Cannon Hill Park, with the main entrance on Queen’s Ride, opposite the Warwickshire County Cricket Ground.
If you are using Sat Nav, the postcode B12 9QH should get you close to the parking.
Getting there by car
Cannon Hill Park is situated approximately 2 miles south of Birmingham City Centre, and is a short drive from junction 6 of the M6.
Pay and display parking is available at the far end of Queens Ride (nearest to the Showdome), which runs alongside Cannon Hill Park. Parking costs £2 for up to 4 hours, and you can pay by cash, mobile phone or via the Parkmobile app. For more information, please see the Birmingham City Council website.
The car park can get busy, especially on sunny days, so please allow plenty of time. If there is a match at the nearby Edgbaston Cricket Ground on the day of your performance there may be different arrangements in place. We will contact you in advance if this is the case.
Access and blue badge parking
The parking spaces at the very far end of Queens Ride (nearest the Showdome) are reserved for Blue Badge holders and customers with special access needs. If you have special access needs, please make sure you contact our Helpdesk team in advance so we can help make your visit easy and enjoyable!
Getting there by bus
You can get to Cannon Hill Park from the City Centre by bus. Take the 1 bus (towards Edgbaston Road) and alight at Midland Arts Centre. Alternatively take the 45 or 47 bus (towards Pershore Road) and alight at the Nature Centre. The Showdome is a 5 -10 minute walk from these bus stops.
Getting there by rail
The nearest mainline rail stations are Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Snow Hill, which are both approximately 2 miles from Cannon Hill Park.
The world’s only In the Night Garden Live Showdome is purpose-built to make your day!
In the Night Garden Live takes place in its own purpose-built, family-friendly Showdome. There are only 13 rows of seats, so everyone gets a great view.
Everything is designed to make parents’ lives easier, from roomy seating and child-friendly staff to buggy parks, microwaves, baby-changing facilities and toilets.
It gives In the Night Garden Live a really unique appeal. There are many shows for young children but as The Independent wrote, “there’s nothing quite like In the Night Garden Live”.
Because it’s such a unique venue it’s hard to understand what’s so special about watching In the Night Garden Live inside the family-friendly Showdome if you’ve never seen it before.
That’s why we made this video which takes you on a walking tour inside the world's only In the Night Garden Live Showdome.
We can’t wait to welcome you to Birmingham this summer!
