About the event

Join The Story Museum at a performance of The Tiger Who Came to Tea at Oxford Playhouse, followed by a delicious lunch at St John’s College with the cast and very special guest Judith Kerr.

Direct from a smash hit West End season, The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the stage, celebrating 50 years of Britain’s best-loved picture book!

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs, and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem, by David Wood OBE. Expect to be surprised!

Age guideline 3+
