Today we were invited to see The Very Hungry Caterpillar Live at the new Troubadour Theatre in White City 🐛 🍎 🍉 🧁 .
The show is of course based on the famous book by Eric Carle, which sees a very greedy caterpillar eat and eat before turning into a beautiful butterfly. This is one of Ita’s favourite books and I’m so glad that the live stage version didn’t deviate far from the original story! There was actually 3 short shows beforehand, all telling various tales and encouraging children to get involved. The show was narrated beautifully by 3 actors who also handled all the puppets.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is showing at the Troubadour until 1 September and is also per of London Week – where a child goes free with a paying adult. It is recommended for ages 1+.
Up to 18 months can enter as babes in arms.
I would say this is perfect for very small children!
A little tip I want to share is that parking around White City is mostly permit only and this theatre does not have its own parking. However, if you register with Smart Parking then you can park at Westfields (which is very very close by!) and pay a maximum of approx £6 for the entire day!
