Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).

Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.

However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.

The show below is due to open after the reopening date given above so it is possible it will go ahead, but you are advised to check the booking link to confirm.

4 Dec 2020 to 10 Jan 2021

Show details


Giant Blunderbore is in a terrible rage.

He shouts from above threatening to eat any villager who won't pay their rent.

Poor Dame Trott has to sell her precious cow 'Buttercup' and sends her son Jack to the cow market.

All he comes back with is a worthless bag of beans.

Jill, the grumpy Squire's daughter is kidnapped by the Giant's dogsbody Fleshcreepy and taken to the castle in the clouds.

Will Jack be the hero, climb the beanstalk, rescue his girlfriend and save the world from the human chomping ogre? Only the magical Garden Fairy knows the answer to that …
