Peppa Pig live show to resume tour and West End dates

Published on: 29th April 2021

The live show, based on the animated TV series from Hasbro and eOne, will resume its extensive UK and Ireland tour from 15th October 2021.

Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever! will visit over 80 venues nationwide, with further dates yet to be added. The live show will also enjoy a run in the West End for a strictly limited Christmas season. The London season will run from 2nd December to 2nd January 2022, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, for a total of 48 performances.

The show sees Peppa Pig going on a special day out with George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig, which the producers describe as ‘a road-trip full of fun adventures.’ Audiences will experience Peppa and family experience everything from castles to caves, dragons to dinosaurs and ice-creams to muddy puddles. Popular characters Miss Rabbit, Mr Bull, Suzy Sheep, Gerald Giraffe and more will also be making an appearance.

Over the past 10 years, Peppa Pig Live has created six hugely successful productions, which have been enjoyed by over 1.5m in the UK alone. Peppa Pig Live has also toured throughout the US and Australia and played eight West End Christmas seasons.

The live stage adaptation is produced by leading children’s theatre team Fierylight, in partnership with licensor Hasbro. The production is directed and adapted for theatre by Richard Lewis, and features music from BAFTA award-winning composer Mani Svavarsson.

Richard has previously directed and adapted multiple Peppa Pig Live stage shows including Peppa Pig’s Adventure, Peppa Pig’s Party, Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt, Peppa Pig’s Big Splash and Peppa Pig’s Surprise.

Ticket prices are from £12, and a full list of venues being visited on the tour can be found here.

The show joins an impressive content slate for the Peppa Pig brand detailed by eOne earlier this year.
