Happy Birthday Peter Rabbit – 4pm show

Thursday 3 August, 2023 at 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until Saturday 2 September, 2023

A musical adventure for all the family with Peter Rabbit and his friends!

It’s Peter Rabbit’s birthday. Hop to your seats in our Old Laundry Theatre and join in the fun!

Peter Rabbit’s friends are planning a secret party, but Peter is unhappy… has no one remembered his birthday?  Mrs Rabbit is baking a delicious Birthday cake but Mr McGregor would rather have a pie full of the rabbit who steals carrots from his garden!  Come and celebrate Peter’s birthday with Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck and some of your other favourite characters who are brought to life in this magical theatre production featuring beautifully handcrafted puppets and enchanting original songs.
