Peppa-Pig-480The new production, Peppa Pig’s Surprise, will play from 18th December until 17th Jaunary at the Duke of York’s Theatre, and will run for 40 performances.

The show will follow Peppa Pig’s Party, Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt and Peppa Pig’s Big Splash, which have all entertained pre-schoolers in London’s theatreland.

The show has been classed as suitable for children aged three and older, and will be packed with interactive fun, games, songs and surprises.

Adaptor and director Richard Lewis said: “I’m delighted that Peppa Pig Live will have a sixth consecutive West End residence this Christmas-time. Since the first one at the Criterion Theatre in 2010, we have seen box office demand for these seasons increase year on year, and we now know there is an eager young audience for the ultimate festive experience in London, Christmas with Peppa Pig.”
