Each year, either during the Christmas season or over the summer months, the West End opens its doors to the younger audiences, proving that the London theatre scene has something for everyone. Previous years have seen shows such as The Gruffalo, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt and returning classics like A Christmas Carol making multiple appearances and the Christmas season of 2018 will be no different.

Room On The Broom will return to the capital following its successes in 2010 and 2014, entertaining audiences once again at the Lyric Theatre. With its aim of entertaining younger audiences over the festive season, it will be a must-see for youngsters and adults alike.

Room on the Broom was originally a novel by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (the team behind The Gruffalo and its sequel The Gruffalo’s Child) and concerns a witch and her cat who, through a series of misadventures, are eventually joined by a dog, a bird and a frog on their broom. The problem beings when the witch’s belongings – her hat, wand and bow – are all blown away into the cold night by a powerful gust of wind. The witch knows that this will not do and sets about retrieving them, employing the help of various colourful characters along the way. But the room on the broom is the least of their worries – there’s also a dragon about and it is unlikely to take pity on their situation.

Julia Donaldson is a children’s writer who has penned a long list of books for much of the last two decades. The Gruffalo was her third book and appeared in 1999, with a sequel appearing five years later in 2004 and Room On The Broom arriving on shelves in the intervening years. Both The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom, in addition to enjoying success in the West End, have also been adapted for television with some well known names voicing the characters. Her other credits include Monkey Puzzle in 2000 and Taby McTat in 2009.

Her regular illustrator Axel Scheffler shares many of these credits, including the two Gruffalo stories and Room On The Broom. His work has seen him illustrate for authors on the continent in a career that spans more than twenty years.

So make sure you catch Room On The Broom as it makes its latest appearance in the West End. It runs at the Lyric Theatre from Friday 23rd November 2018.
