In The Night Garden Live - See the BAFTA award-winning CBeebies show this summer! 
   
IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE is an amazing musical theatre experience for all the family. Children's favourite CBeebies' stars - Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends - are all brought beautifully to life on stage using full-size costumes, magical puppets, enchanting music and breathtaking projections.

IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE takes place in its own all-weather, purpose-built inflatable Showdome with many family-friendly facilities. This site-specific structure is a huge hit with children and parents and its immersive theatrical experience makes audiences feel they are actually entering the magical world of the TV show In the Night Garden.

 

Andrew Collier, Creative Director of Minor Entertainment said: "Parents tell us that children as young as a few months old engage with the live show, and the looks on the faces of the children and parents in the audiences are absolutely amazing. It's a huge responsibility and enormous privilege to give so many children their first experience of live theatre."

The Railway Children - Live On Stage at King's Cross Theatre 

Due to popular demand, the Olivier Award-winning production of Mike Kenny's stage adaptation of E. Nesbit's novel The Railway Children - Live on Stage will be extending its run at King's Cross Theatre for a fourth time until 30 October 2016, with tickets on sale from Friday 5 February.

The cast of The Railway Children includes Shaun Williamson as Mr Perks, Caroline Harker as Mother, Sophie Ablett as Bobbie, Matt Jessup as Peter, Beth Lilly as Phyllis, Lindsay Allen as Mrs Perks, plus a children's ensemble made up of three teams of ten children aged between 9 and 15.

A purpose built 1,000-seat theatre, complete with a railway track and platforms, and with a state of the art air conditioning and heating system, was specially created for this production on King's Boulevard, behind King's Cross Station, a site which has been loaned to the production for the duration of the run by Google.

The production at King's Cross Theatre is in support of the Railway Children Charity that aims to help homeless and runaway children throughout the world, with 1 per ticket donated to the charity.  To date, 335,000 has been raised by the theatre production since its West End debut in 2010.

The Railway Children tells the story of Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis, three children whose lives change dramatically when their father is mysteriously taken away.  They move from London to a cottage in rural Yorkshire with their mother, where they befriend the local railway porter, Perks, and embark on a magical journey of discovery, friendship and adventure.  But the mystery remains - where is Father, and is he ever coming back?

2016 marks the 110th anniversary of the publication of Edith Nesbit's much loved classic children's book The Railway Children, which has subsequently been adapted for the stage and screen, most famously in the 1970 film version directed by Lionel Jeffries and starring Jenny Agutter, Bernard Cribbins, Dinah Sheridan and Sally Thomsett.
