THE TIGER Who Came To Tea returns to the area next month for performances in Ilkley.

The family favourite will be performed at King’s Hall

on October 17 at 1.30pm and 4.30pm, and October 18 at 10.30am and 1.30pm.

“The “truly magical” Olivier Award-nominated West End production was adapted and directed by David Wood OBE from Judith Kerr’s storybook.

It is described as the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged three-plus.

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 furry, stripy tiger!

When Sophie and her Mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. He even manages to drink all the water in the tap!

What will Sophie’s Daddy say when he gets home?

Join the Tiger, Sophie and her Mummy and Daddy, in this musical slice of teatime mayhem with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun.

David Wood is the UK’s leading creator of plays and musicals for children, with successes including The Gingerbread Man, eight Roald Dahl adaptations including The BFG and The Witches, and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.

David Wood has written more than 70 plays for children which are performed worldwide.

His award-winning adult musical, based on L P Hartley’s The Go-Between, co-written with Richard Taylor, opened in the West End in June 2016.
