Better than old-fashioned theatres

When we first talked to parents about where In the Night Garden Live should take place, the first thing you told us was old-fashioned theatres wouldn't be suitable.

Babies and toddlers can’t sit in a folding theatre seat. And the thought of taking a small child to traditional venues fills most parents with dread.

There aren’t enough toilets, baby changing facilities, room for buggies, let alone space to leave your seat unflustered without disturbing everyone else.

So we asked you what would make it work.

Somewhere really special

You said you wanted an experience that would be easy and fun for the whole family. And you wanted somewhere really special - somewhere that feels like you're actually entering the Night Garden.  

On a practical level, you wanted child-friendly, roomy seating with enough space for little ones to feel completely free to roam, cuddle up, sit on laps, jump and dance around without disturbing others. 

You also needed several baby changing spaces, toddler-friendly loos, plus space to park over 100 buggies securely! 

Finally, you said you'd prefer locations that are nice and convenient, such as parks and shopping centres, with parking, cafes and transport links nearby, to make it easier to plan a really memorable and fun day out.

It didn’t exist

Looking at this list of specific requirements, we soon realised your ideal venue didn’t exist!

So the only way to make it happen was to design our own purpose-built theatre venue. This created another advantage. Owning our own venue means we can use our own specially trained child-friendly staff to welcome you.

Introducing the amazing showdome

So that’s why 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.
