This site-specific structure is a huge hit with children and parents and the 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.”

IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE is written by celebrated creator and composer of In the Night Garden, Andrew Davenport, and directed by acclaimed Royal Ballet choreographer and director, Will Tuckett. It is produced by Minor Entertainment under licence from DHX Brands.
