Tom’s Midnight Garden, 
Lyceum Theatre

Birmingham Stage Company bring their version of Philippa Pearce’s much-loved children’s story to Sheffield this week.

Can you travel back in time?

Tom has always been told it’s impossible but when the grandfather clock in the hallway chimes 13 times, he is transported to a secret garden from the past.

Here he meets Hatty and together the two new friends enjoy fantastic adventures in a magical wonderland.

But with each new journey through time, strange things begin to happen and in the end Tom must solve the mystery of the midnight garden.

First published in 1958, Tom’s Midnight Garden is an acclaimed children’s classic that won the Carnegie Medal for Children’s Literature in 1959.

Birmingham Stage Company are well known for their children’s shows, adapted from books like James and the Giant Peach and the Horrible Histories series.

Multi-award winning playwright David Wood has written this show, which Birmingham Stage Company say “features ghostly illusions, spellbinding music and an extraordinary cast that will take audiences on a very special journey through time itself – a truly memorable theatrical experience to enthral children (ages 4+) and adults alike.”

Tom’s Midnight Garden is on stage at the Lyceum this week until Saturday.

Tickets are priced £12 and 15 (concessions available) and can be purchased by visiting the Crucible Theatre, calling the box office on 0114 249 6000 or by visiting
