“One of those shows people will talk about for years to come” – Breeze FM

 

Matilda The Musical is the multi-award winning musical from the Royal Shakespeare Company, inspired by the beloved book by the incomparable Roald Dahl.

With the book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda The Musical is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

Winner of over 80 major international awards, including 16 for Best Musical, Matilda is the absolute must-see theatre event of the year!

With standing ovations night after night and absolute rave reviews, we advise you to book early or you may just miss out! For the best seats and availability, book for mid-week evening performances.
