Matilda the Musical tickets

A perfectly mischievous family favourite

Matilda is the perfect example of children's theatre in London that adults will love too, boasting mischief, mayhem and a huge heart. Get your little miracles engrossed in the magic of theatre with tickets to this modern family favourite at the Cambridge Theatre.

The musical delights audiences with the story of a young girl and her remarkable, magical gifts. Despite having awful parents who belittle and ignore her, Matilda’s determination leads her to the lovely Miss Honey... all while avoiding headmistress Miss Trunchbull’s terrifying temper!

Roald Dahl’s much-loved children’s book is given a boisterous musical makeover, with comedian Tim Minchin’s songs - including “When I Grow Up” and “Revolting Children” - injecting a witty breath of fresh air into the tale.

Since bursting into London in 2011 with a technicolour set and incredible cast of young actors, Matilda has caught the imaginations of audiences worldwide, earning 7 Olivier Awards and a celebrated Broadway season.

Snatch up Matilda tickets and you’ll be utterly enchanted, whether you’re 6 or 60. Borrowing the best parts of Dahl’s dark humour and adding some hilarious new twists, this musical adventure is a truly irresistible treat.
