BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND - Peter Rabbit and Me

Everyone's favourite rabbit comes to life in Peter Rabbit and Me at National Children's Theatre's Outdoor IMAGINATION Theatre.   


A delightful dramatisation of the beloved story of Peter Rabbit


Beatrix Potter, a child of a strict father, stuck in a nursery, creates her own excitement by inventing and illustrating stories about her pet animals and toys.


She imagines an adventure for her favourite: Peter Rabbit. We see her creating an early version of what becomes a story beloved by children everywhere: The Tale of Peter Rabbit. All our favourite characters are there: Mother Rabbit, Flopsey, Mopsey, Cottontail, the mouse, the birds, and of course, grumpy Mr McGregor. 


Here is a charming and revealing glimpse of a child’s life in strict Victorian England a hundred years ago, in contrast with the antics and freedom of Beatrix’s inventive, uninhibited and unconfined animal world. Peter Rabbit is filled with humour, adventure, colourful characters and all the wonder of children’s theatre.


Presented by National Children’s Theatre, in our safe outdoor IMAGINATION THEATRE, following all COVID protocols.


Bring your masks, ground cover, low chairs, blankets, picnic basket, and enjoy children’s theatre at its best. Regret NO Alcohol to be brought onto the premises.

This is family entertainment at its very best - an occasion not to be missed!
