Meet the lovable Babe in a heart-warming tale of friendship, adventure and bravery.
When Babe arrives at Hogget’s Farm he is taken in by the trusty sheep-dog Fly and discovers a talent for herding. With the help of his adopted Mum, our polite piglet soon wins over the most suspicious of sheep. But can a small pig make it in a dog’s world, and when his farmyard friends are in trouble can Babe save the day?

Join us for an enchanting family favourite, as the classic novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film comes alive with plenty of laughter, thrills, stunning puppetry and original music.

Adapted by Olivier Award winner David Wood (Goodnight Mister Tom, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG), follow the incredible story of one piglet’s rise to become the world famous sheep-pig.
