Nick Reed, Chief Executive of Town Hall Symphony Hall said:

“Almost 50,000 people have been delighted by the stage adaptation of Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came To Tea at Birmingham’s Town Hall, including two relaxed performances. A firm children’s favourite, the magical stage adaptation captured young minds with magic tricks and sing-along-songs. I am deeply saddened to hear of the author’s passing. I remain thankful that her work lives on in many guises for generations to come to experience and enjoy.”

Earlier this year, Town Hall Symphony Hall welcomed partner primary schools and children centres from Ladywood and Falcon Lodge to Town Hall where they were given free tickets to watch the stage adaption. For many of these children, it was the first time that they experienced a live, staged performance 

Mrs Pal, Teacher at City Road Academy said:

“Thank you yet again for organising such a wonderful performance!...The children really enjoyed the play and talked about it all afternoon. One little boy even said "If the Tiger came to my house I would give him roti (chapatti)!”
