Information

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 scheme of her own!

Join the clever Ladybird as she leads the animals on their quest to save the day in this joyous stage adaptation of What the Ladybird Heard, the bestselling picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.

With live music, ​puppetry and a whole farmyard of fun, this 55-minute family favourite is the perfect treat!

Seating for this production is based on a socially-distanced model at this moment in time. Please note that this may change depending on Government guidance closer to the performance date, meaning that some people may be sat next to you if it is deemed safe to do so by the latest guidance.

Ticket holders will be contacted via email ahead of the production date with full details of our latest audience safety procedures and requirements. The safety of our audiences, performers and staff remains our uttermost priority.

Please note, this is a new run of What the Ladybird Heard. If you had a booking for the show in May 2021, it is no longer valid and you will need to book new tickets. Please call our Ticket Sales team if you have any questions.
