A fun comedy with some of the best child actors I’ve ever seen on stage. The script is great and the score in parts is good. The best scene comes towards the end of Act 2 so is worth sticking around. True to the books and fans should approve of what has been done with this musical.

A wonderful new musical set in 1981 which was full of nostalgia for me! Very true to the Adrian Mole books, I thought the performances of the children were really good with some genuine laugh out loud funny moments. The songs were quite catchy and there is a nativity scene in this which will stay with you for a while! A great evening's entertainment - can highly recommend!

This show simply wowed me! I think everyone can relate to the story and characters one way or another, so you will quickly feel totally immersed in the show. I am so glad I have seen it and will probably see it again.

I really enjoyed this and was pleased it was true to the book and TV series, providing lots of laughs throughout. Fantastic actors from young to old. If I had one complaint (and it’s not really a complaint) I would’ve liked to have heard the original theme tune, just for a bit of nostalgia. If not in the play, then at least at the end. But I really liked this and would definitely recommend watching it.

A good musical adaptation of the book with some entertaining songs and some really funny moments. The performers are all great - especially the young actors playing Adrian and Pandora on the night I went. If it is inline with your sense of humour of if you like the original book - you should definitely see this.

I did enjoy the show because it was very interesting and not what I was expecting at all. It was very cheeky and cheesy. It is a incredible show to see, although there was a few points were it was very cheesy and a bit rude, it was an incredible experience that I would do again.
