In What's On

Fresh from its 10th anniversary on stage and more than 50 years as Britain’s best-loved picture book, The Tiger Who Came To Tea visits The Dukes this April.

This musical play adapted from Judith Kerr’s classic tale is the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged three and above and the perfect treat for the whole family. 

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?

This musical slice of teatime mayhem is filled with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun.

The Tiger will be guzzling tonnes of tea and cake while at The Dukes as there are performances at 1.30pm and 4pm on April 12 and at 11am and 2pm on April 13.

Tickets are priced £12.50 each or £44 for a family of four. To book, contact The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or visit

The Dukes current family theatre season ends on May 7 with three performances of Puss in Boots by Northern Ballet.
