Olivier Award-nominated musical play The Tiger Who Came To Tea is at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre from Thursday, February 12, to Sunday, February 15.

Adapted and directed by David Wood from Judith Kerr’s ferociously popular story, this is the perfect way to show the whole family how to behave the next time a tiger rings your doorbell!

When Sophie and her mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. And even manages to the drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie’s daddy say when he gets home?
