Neverland

4 - 31 December
Suitable for 4+

From the same creative team that brought you A Christmas Carol in 2013 comes a brand new musical production for families, inspired by J.M.Barrie's timeless classic about a boy who never wants to grow up.

Meet a particularly cheeky Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wendy, grumpy Mr Darling, and of course a certain Captain Hook as we are whisked across the sky to a world of transformation and enchantment...

Help us raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital

Neverland Director Martin Berry was so jealous of Peter Pan being able to fly that he decided he wanted to have a go. So he's jumping out of a plane on 28 November to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Please help us by donating via JustGiving and help spread the word about his #bigadventure!

Reviews

We absolutely loved Neverland.  The adventure starts from the moment you enter the building, making it more than just a trip to the theatre: it’s magical, imaginative, captivating and funny, with something for all ages.

 ‘It was wonderfully adventurous and inspiring to kids whatever their problems. All the acting was great. My favourite bit is when Peter and Wendy fly over London.’
