Information

Not perfect? Join the club! Toddle through the highs, lows and sleep deprivation of motherhood with The Good Enough Mums Club, a poignant and hilarious musical  produced, written, directed and performed by mums. From peeing on sticks to drooping tits we share the love and dispel the myths with enough wipes to mop the tears and clean away the snotty laughter.

Five women thrown together by motherhood, overcome their isolation, loneliness, judgment and perfectionism to discover that they’re stronger as a group than as individuals, and that sometimes, being good enough is best.

This hysterical, heart-breaking and honest new musical written, produced, directed, and performed by mothers is capturing the attention of critics, parents and non-parents alike throughout the country.

We welcome children under 4 to our special baby & child friendly matinee on Sat 28 Oct 2.30pm. Click here to find out more about this relaxed and family-friendly experience.

The Good Enough Mums Club is an associate company of Birmingham Hippodrome.

Family-friendly matinee

Relaxed and family-friendly experience

We welcome children under 4 to our special baby & child friendly matinee on Sat 28 Oct 2.30pm (our evening performances are strictly 12+).  

Here are a few things to keep in mind when bringing your child to a baby & child friendly matinee:

Tickets
Children under 4 (£3 off ticket price) and babes in arms (under 18 months) are welcome on Sat matinee – please call to book in advance for babes in arms.

Inside the theatre
There’s no need to worry about disturbing others if your child fusses. The lights are slightly brighter than a regular matinee, and we understand that kids will be kids.

Take a break
You can come and go as you need to. If you (or your child) need a break, you can step outside for some fresh air or take them to the restroom – come back when you’re ready. You’re also more than welcome to feed your child in the space if you need to.

Buggies and pushchairs
We’ve got a dedicated space for you to safely park your baby buggy.

We know looking after kids keeps you on your toes. So, when you’re with us, you’re our guest and we’ll do everything we can to make you and your child feel welcome. If you need help with anything, just ask a member of the team.

P.S. If your child is at the stage where they repeat everything they hear, you might want to consider this as the show is quite sweary!
