  • Samatha Riches on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Every production I've seen here has been excellent. Family of four saw the Velveteen Rabbit this weekend and everyone enjoyed it. A really lovely production, engaging, funny and moving. Staff are friendly and helpful the space is fantastic for kids - love the Quentin Blake art on the walls - and as a disability friendly employer you tick all the right boxes. Highly recommended for all families, and I think a lot of adults would love Jeremy, Hartlebee and Ooglemore too!
  • Catriona Aleppo on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Great set up, ran to time, easy to get in and toys to play with we waited in between the Velveteen Rabbit show and the afternoon tea. It was a wonderful story which was staged well for my 6 and 4 year old. The afternoon tea was adorable. We had a wonderful time thank you! X
  • Laura Ings Self on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 We came to see The Velveteen Rabbit today and what a brilliant show it is. So engaging, beautifully told with wonderfully animated performances. I love the physical theatre you so often get when performances are aimed at children and this was no exception. Several instances of gasps echoing around the auditorium and definite moments of concern and delight. Another wonderful production at the Unicorn.
  • Eve Batten on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 I went to see the Velveteen Rabbit yesterday. Utterly charming production in the loveliest of theatres. The Unicorn is a shining example of children's theatre at its best. The whole set up, organisation and warmly welcoming staff. They get it so right. When we have recently heard that 44% of secondary children (visiting the Globe) had never been to a theatre before I feel so sad at what has been missed. The Unicorn should be compulsory. Thank you all so much.
  • Helena Dahlstrom Russell on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Attended with 7 year-old, and 9 year-old Always have a wonderful time here. I am yet to see a production that disappoints rather than stuns, don't think it will ever happen. We saw The Iron Man this time which was spectacular, the 7 year old, the 9 year old and myself all thought so.
  • Shelley Michael on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Attended with 3 year-old We went and watched Jeramee -it was really good and my 3, soon to be 4 year old daughter laughed out loud loads and loved the interaction with the actors. Highly recommended x
  • Helen Hall on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Such a lovely theatre, staff so helpful and friendly. Definite thumbs up from me and a huge thank you :)
  • Samantha Whorlow on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Attended with 8 year-old Such a lovely place to discover. I brought my 8 year old son to see Jason and the Argonauts as he's been studying Ancient Greece and he was so inspired by it that he wrote it all out in the form of a diary for this week's homework. All the staff we met were really friendly and the facilities are fantastic. Was great to have th question and answer session with the cast after the show. Loved the little play area, low down sinks in th toilets and beanbags in the foyer...such a brilliant place for children. There don't seem to be any bad seats either...ours were "restricted view" but we could see just fine. My son is already planning his next trip as he'd like to bring a couple of friends to see The Iron Man for his birthday. 100% recommended!
  • Uri Golomb on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Wonderful adaptation of _The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark_ at the Unicorn Theatre in London. I came to the show with my four-year-old daughter, Tali, who doesn't speak much English (we're tourists on vacation from Israel), but still enjoyed herself immensely -- as did I. For me, the show had an almost poetic quality to it, and I loved the way it stimulated the viewers' imagination. We were also very impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. I strongly recommend this production, and will look up the Unicorn's events the next time we plan a trip to London.
  • Michele-Zahra Stella Mahfouz on Facebook Tue 15th Aug 2017 Wonderful experience, I felt just like a child again and was mesmerised just as much as my kids were. Amazing I recommend to everyone.... very cute & touching story....
