The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Dinosaur World Live are heading to Cambridge Arts Theatre to entertain families this summer.

Dinosaur World Live will return to the theatre from Monday, August 19 to Wednesday, August 21, following a popular visit in 2022.

The entertaining and educational live show invites audiences to join an intrepid explorer across uncharted territories to discover a prehistoric world of dinosaurs.

Families can meet a host of intrepid creatures - including the Tyrannosaurus Rex, a Triceratops, Giraffatitan, Microraptor and Segnosaurus.

Each performance is followed by a post-show meet-and-greet, where audience members have the chance to meet some of the dinosaurs in person.

Dinosaur World Live has appeared at London's Regent's Park Open-Air Theatre and Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, as well as going on tour in the United States in 2019, four major UK tours and a drive-in season during the lockdown summer of 2020.

Performances will be held at 2pm and 4.30pm on the Monday, and at 11am and 2pm on the Tuesday and Wednesday.

The show is suitable for ages three plus, and tickets are available from or by calling the box office on 01223 503333.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea will be staged later that same week, from Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25.

Based on the bestselling book by Judith Kerr, the Olivier-award nominated show is returning to Cambridge following a hit visit in 2022.

In the play, the doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea - and they receive an unexpected visit from a big, stripy tiger.


The family show features sing-a-long songs, along with "oodles of magic and plenty of teatime mayhem".

Performances will take place at 2pm and 4.30pm on the Friday, and 11am and 2pm on the Saturday and Sunday. The show is suitable for ages three plus.

First published in 1968, the book of The Tiger Who Came to Tea has been entertaining readers for over 50 years.

It has been published in five different formats, was adapted into a TV animation in 2019, and has sold more than four million copies.
