What the Ladybird Heard is Live on Stage at the Palace Theatre for a strictly limited summer season from 15th July to 29th August 2021 and then flying out on tour in Autumn 2021!

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer's fine prize cow. But they reckon without the tiniest, quietest creature of all: the Ladybird has a scheme of her own!

Join the clever Ladybird as she leads the animals on their quest to save the day in this joyous stage adaptation of What the Ladybird Heard, the beloved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.

With live music, ​puppetry and a whole farmyard of fun, this 55-minute family favourite is the perfect summer treat!

Recommended for ages 3+.
