Event details

A brand-new take on Tim Minchin’s Tony and Olivier award-winning musical, Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical tells the story of Matilda Wormwood, an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination who’s shipped off to Crunchem Hall school by her wicked parents.

She finds an ally in the good-natured Miss Honey (Lashana Lynch), but also falls afoul of the fearsome Miss Trunchbull (Emma Thompson) – and daring to take a stand and change her story provides some miraculous results.
