In the Night Garden Live is coming to Birmingham Hippodrome in 2023!

Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends are back in their fun-filled live show Igglepiggle’s Busy Day! Join Igglepiggle as he looks for his friends in the Night Garden by following their funny sounds until he finds them all!

You’ll see all your favourite characters beautifully brought to life with full-size costumes, magical puppets, and enchanting music. This show lasts just under an hour and your little ones will be amazed when they see a very special visit from the amazing flying Pinky Ponk.

Now in its 14th year, In the Night Garden Live is one of the UK’s favourite family events. Over 1.1 million people have seen it so far and it gets 4.8 out of 5 stars based on 13,653 parents’ reviews.

Access & Family Activities

Between shows we have a family area in our PwC Suite, where you can play instruments to recreate the sounds from the show, dress up in some theatrical costumes, make believe and chill out! Drop in and have some fun. The family area is open on:

Please note that during the show, this area becomes a break-out space for anyone who needs some quiet time, and all instruments and costumes will be tidied away whilst you enjoy the performance.
