In The Night Garden Live


On the 24th of July myself, teen daughter, Harry and Jack headed to Birmingham on the train to watch In The Night Garden Live. Both Harry and Jack are fans of the show so we’re super excited! 

We got there an hour early which we thought would be annoying but actually we discovered it was actually a good time to arrive because the doors to the show opened half and hour before the show starts. 


When we first walked in their is a huge stand with lots of goodies to buy, you cannot miss it and it’s near impossible to go past with the kids and not buy something. 

Then we were put in a cue. Premium ticket holders in one and standard ticket holders in another. We had standard tickets but we’re first in our cue. It didn’t take long for it to soon get very very busy! I’m glad I asked what we do with the pushchair because was told that she would open the line to let us in and you would either walk in or walk the other way to park your pushchair which just seemed like a pain in the bottom with 2 kids so I parked my pushchair and then waited in the line so I could just walk straight in. 


Once in we found a seat and it was basically very large stairs. So when you sat down you were just above the people in front of you. So if you’re attending next year, don’t panic about getting a good seat because basically you can see the show wherever you sit. 


I thought the kids would get really bored and play up for me in half hour but actually there was lots to keep their minds active. We were in a big dome and there were lots of things projected onto the roof including all the characters and every few minutes the pinky pink would fly past which made the boys watch so they could put it out. Also the narrater Derek Jacobi would keep us reminded of the time and how many minutes was left which made everyone get excited. 


Once the show started the kids just stared in awe! We thought Jack would get bored being only 18 months but he loved it! The show was 1 hour long but I would say about 45 mins was Jacks limit until he started to want to wonder but luckily not too bad. 




It was a great show and I would recommend it to all parents with a child who is a fan of In The Night Garden. 
* I was given tickets to this show but all words and opinions are my own.

    I absolutely loved your snaps of the day, the children looked completely awestruck. I genuinely think my 9yo would love this, as his mental age is slightly lower x
