Note for families! This show is taking part in Kids Week, the annual promotion that allows kids to go free to London shows during August, when accompanied by a full-paying adult. 

Two crafty robbers, one tiny ladybird, and a whole farmyard of fun!

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer's fine prize cow. But they reckon without the tiniest, quietest creature of all: The Ladybird has a plan of her own!

Live on stage in the West End, audiences are invited to join the woolly sheep, the hairy hog, the fat red hen and the dainty dog in this glittering stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks' colourful farmyard adventure.

With live music, puppetry, plenty of audience participation and lots of laughs, What The Ladybird Heard is the perfect family treat.

Age Recommendation: 3+.
