In The Night Garden returning to Manchester

Things to do with kids - In The Night Garden Live

The smash-hit In The Night Garden Live returns to Manchester with a UK theatre tour stopping off at Manchester’s Palace Theatre.

The tour sees Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and, of course, Makka Pakka presenting a brand-new show, taking little ones in to the magical world of In the Night Garden.

The CBeebies favourites are brought to life with a specially written story using full-size costumes and magical puppets.  The musical theatre show features enchanting music and dancing.



In the Night Garden premiered in 2010 before becoming a summer entertainment fixture.  It is a firm favourite with young pre-schoolers and parents and has been seen by more than one million people.

Executive Producer Oliver Seadon commented on the success of the show, “When we made In the Night Garden Live we never imagined it would run for 10 years and that over a million visitors would come to see it.  It’s incredibly exciting now to be making a brand-new show and taking it into theatres all over the country.”

In The Night Garden Live is written by Helen Eastman and based on the Ragdoll television series created by Andrew Davenport.  It is directed by acclaimed Royal Ballet choreographer and director Will Tuckett.

When does In the Night Garden Live run at Manchester’s Palace Theatre?

In the Night Garden Live runs at Manchester’s Palace Theatre on 28 August (10am and 4pm) and 29 August 2019 (10am and 1pm).
