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! This amazing world premiere will be touring the UK throughout the year!

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. EVEN Amy Porter (who's smart) won't talk to him! Can his best friend Derek help? Will Rooster the dog stop eating his homework? Will his grandparents the Fossils ever make something he can actually EAT?

This exciting and hilarious new adventure brings Liz Pichon’s fantastic characters to life and is perfect for all the family whether you are a lover of the books or new to Tom and his friends!


"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
