ABOUT The Tiger Who Came To Tea

Based on the award winning picture book by Judith Kerr, The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the West End this Winter for a festive treat at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Adapted for the stage with songs and lyrics by the UK’s leading children’s theatre dramatist David Wood OBE, this musical treat is a delight for kids of all ages.

The hilarious tale of a tea-guzzling tiger who drops in for tea contains lots of surprises for the whole family.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea is booking until 6 September 2020 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, London.


The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem… expect to be surprised!
