This Summer the spectacular In the Night Garden Live show is back in our amazing family-friendly Showdome. With just 13 rows of seats, you’ll be close to the action wherever you sit and everyone gets a great view!
See Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka brought to life before your eyes with beautiful costumes, magical puppets, enchanting music, and breathtaking projections that make it feel like you're actually in the Night Garden.
There are two different shows to choose from. Each one lasts just under an hour and follows a different story.
In the Ninky Nonk show, Igglepiggle loses his blanket and all his friends help him find it.
In the Pinky Ponk show, Makka Pakka washes everyone’s faces, until his sponge gets stuck in Upsy Daisy’s megaphone!
All the characters appear in both shows, and both are equally popular. The stories are not linked. So you don't need to see both, and you can see them in any order.
Will you catch the Ninky Nonk or the Pinky Ponk?
Manchester, The Trafford Centre
