The Elephantom at the New London Theatre

New London Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The National Theatre’s hit show The Elephantom is great fun for all the family.

Following an acclaimed and sold-out season at the National Theatre’s Shed, The Elephantom charges its way into the New London Theatre for a series of daytime performances throughout the summer.

Based on Ross Collins’ much-loved books, The Elephantom is great entertainment for young and old and uses a magical mix of puppetry, movement, dance and music to tell the story of the little girl who is unexpectedly visited by a big blue elephant.

The perfect summer treat for all the family.


The Elephantom is the tale of a little girl who one day finds a big blue elephant has turned up at her door. At first, the little girl is thrilled to have a ghost-elephant living in her house. He makes life so much more fun! But Elephantoms are a bit too big for houses and before long, he’s causing a lot of trouble. Come and join the fun with this intriguing story that fuels the imagination and touches the heart. The story of one little girl and her larger-than-life friend is set to get very messy indeed!
