Perform in the Park is London's first ever festival of children's theatre.

A 500 seat air-conditioned theatre will be built in Coram's Fields, Bloomsbury and will be showing live performances all day every day from 22nd July to 28th August.

There are four fantastic children's shows to see plus an all-day café and the playgrounds, sandpits and paddling pool of Coram's Fields so you can make a day of it.

We hope to see you there!

The four shows are the following: 

The Three Billy Goats Gruff 

On a grassy hill, in the middle of the countryside, there lived THE THREE BILLY GOATS GRUFF!

They never stopped eating and before long they had eaten everything they could get their hooves on! The only option is to go looking for more food.

Hold on to your horns and join the three billy goats on their wild and wacky adventure, as they bravely cross the rickety bridge to greener pastures. But who will they meet along the way as they TRIP TRAP over the bridge?

With lots of catchy songs, funky dances to clap along to and a rapping troll to boot, Lost The Plot Theatrical are proud to present this smash-hit children's musical. An interactive, family fun show and the perfect treat this summer for little ones and the big kids that bring them!

Elephant and Piggie's: We Are in a Play!

Get ready for a musical experience straight from the pages of Mo Willems' award-winning best-selling children's books that will leave audiences doing the Flippy Floppy Floory dance all night long!

An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, "bestus" friends, but Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship.

Piggie is not worried at all. She's even happier and more excited than usual. That's because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, three singing squirrels who love to have a good time.

And so begins a day when anything is possible.

Filled with beloved characters and lively songs, Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!" is a perfect way to introduce young people to theatre. 

Mermaids & Pirates

When Long Gone Silver and his hapless pirates sail up to Treasure Island, they're not expecting Marina and her super-cool mermaids. Chaos ensues and, after The Sacred Coconut goes missing, it's down to singing parrot Rita Conchita and her friends to save the day.

With a galley of larger-than-life characters including Jack, the Seasick Pirate, shy mermaid Myrtle and Coco, Queen Of The Island, Mermaids & Pirates is a one-hour musical packed with calypso-infused songs, salsa-inspired dancing and laugh-out-loud humour. Aimed at 4-11s, it's a Caribbean adventure the whole family can enjoy.

The Dream

Social media is going mad for the star-studded engagement of footballer Theseus and his popstar fiancée, Hippolyta. But, when tech bro billionaire, Oberon, goes up against Titania for the streaming rights to the wedding, a quartet of young celebrities get caught up in his schemes. Meanwhile, will Bottom and his Dude Mechanicals get a shot at fame and fortune?

With media moguls, popstars, YouTubers and fashion influencers, The Dream brings Shakespeare's classic A Midsummer Night's Dream bang up-to-date with an hour of infectious songs, exuberant dancing and hilarious dialogue. Aimed at 7-14s, this is a celebrity sensation everybody can enjoy.
