The Tiger Who Came to Tea - London

Booking Info


A musical play adapted & directed by DAVID WOOD
Based on the book by JUDITH KERR

Based on Britain’s best-loved picture book by Judith Kerr, the Olivier Award nominated smash hit show The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the West End for summer 2022.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem... expect to be surprised!

Please note: Babes in arms under 18 months sitting on an adult lap do not need a ticket – all other patrons must have a valid ticket.
