Sorry this event has already happened.

Nine-year-old Pippi is strong, brave and fearless. When she comes to live in her new home with her monkey and horse but with no parents and no rules, she brings mischief, chaos and confusion to the folk of this ordinary and traditional town. Pippi takes charge of her own crazy adventures, with her two new friends, Tommy and Annika. What else would you expect from the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?

This playful and quirky solo storytelling performance, with audience participation, introduces children to Astrid Lindgren’s much-loved Pippi Longstocking, ‘the strongest girl in the world’. Created for you by Olivier award-winning director Helena Middleton, with original music by Brook Tate and adapted for the stage by acclaimed storyteller Danyah Miller.

Find out why the self-sufficient, quick-witted, and generous Pippi has inspired fans the world over, including Lauren Child, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, and Cerys Matthews, to name just a few!

Join us for a post-show optional Thing Finder craft activity.

I was really fascinated with this strong little girl that was the centre of everything, and she was almost magical in a way. She was stronger and tougher than anyone. She had super-human strength, and I got a kick out of her.”- Michelle Obama
