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 will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details

Synopsis


Most Beds are Beds for sleeping and resting, but the best Beds are much more interesting!


Curl up and get comfy for a bedtime story like no other.


Let us take you on a journey sprinkled with fantasy and escapism, where you will meet elephants, macaws and parakeets.


Venture underwater, to the North Pole and even outer space without ever leaving the comfort of your own bed.


Beds come in all shapes and sizes, from cots to king-sized, and some you might never have heard of before - see if you can discover them all along the way.


This enchanting poem by Sylvia Plath, written for her own children, is brought to life in a special show for babies and toddlers.
