Tom Gates

14 February 2019 – 8 December 2019

Based on the best-selling books by Liz Pichon, this brand new story of TOM GATES is brought to you by the award-winning team behind Horrible Histories and Gangsta Granny and for the first time ever it's LIVE ON STAGE! It’s pure fun for the whole family whether you're a lover of the books or new to Tom and his friends!

Tom's doing everything possible to stay out of trouble but somehow he's got THREE sad faces on the school achievement chart! And getting another sad face means Mr Fullerman won't let him go on the SCHOOL TRIP! Moany Marcus Meldrew is making things worse and now Tom's annoyed his grumpy sister Delia. Can his best friend Derek help? Will Rooster the dog stop eating his homework? 

Entertaining, funny and exceptionally feel-good, TOM GATES is jam-packed with Liz Pichon’s illustrations which are amazingly animated for the stage! With brilliantly catchy tunes and hilarious performances, you're guaranteed to leave the theatre with a huge smile on your face. So climb aboard this world premiere production as it magically transports you into Tom's amazing world! See details of your nearest venue below!

"This truly amazing show brings my books wonderfully to life in a fantastically funny and visually mesmerizing way. It's a total feast for the eyes and ears and I couldn't be prouder of it!" LIZ PICHON
