2. If you book early, you can choose the best seats! 

There are still seats available for almost every performance. But don’t leave it too late – over 25,000 tickets have already been booked and some performances are very full. It’s worth booking before the tour starts on Thu 2 May to make sure you get the best choice of dates, times and seats.

3. We’re coming to 28 theatres - each for a few days only!

Don’t miss it – we’re coming to 28 theatres across the UK from Thu 2 May to Thu 5 Sep. There are only a few performances on sale at each theatre and we’re visiting most venues for 2 days only. Find your nearest venue here and book now before it’s too late.

4. See Igglepiggle and the amazing flying Pinky Ponk at your local theatre!

Parents tell us when the Pinky Ponk flies over the audience it’s one of the most “breath-taking” moments of watching the show. Watch the wonderful audience reaction in the video above or read more about it here.

The only way to see the amazing flying Pinky Ponk and Igglepiggle in his new show is to book tickets with our official ticketing partner Family Tickets before it’s too late!

Whilst we make every endeavour for the Pinky Ponk to fly in every performance, the appearance of the flying Pinky Ponk cannot be guaranteed. This does not affect the performance.

Now in its 15th year, In the Night Garden Live is one of the UK’s favourite family events. Over 1.3 million people have seen it so far and it gets 4.8 out of 5 stars based on 13,777 parents’ reviews.

    Hi Gillian, C. Yates, Sue and K. Taylor - thanks for all your comments. Sadly we don't have any plans to visit Newcastle, West Yorkshire or the south at the moment. In 2015 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: http://www.nightgardenlive.com/sign-up/
