Tall Stories’ musical adaptation of the popular children’s book by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler lands in the West End.

Adapted for the stage by the creators of hit production The Gruffalo, Room On The Broom takes audiences on a broom-ing marvelous adventure with a witch, her cat, a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog.

Aimed at children between the ages of three and eight, Room On The Broom uses enchanting puppetry, sing-a-long songs and hilarious fun to bring the witch’s tale to life.

As the witch and her cat fly along on their broomstick, a strong gust of wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away. With the help of her friends, the witch embarks on a quest to retrieve her belongings. But this broomstick isn’t made for five.

When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on her broomstick for everyone?
