The Bear

Adapted from the book by Raymond Briggs

‘Move over War Horse… this enchanting production is everything children’s theatre should be’ The Guardian

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap?
Or ride on its back?
Have you ever tried to give a bear a bath?
Looking after a bear is exhausting stuff.

One night when she's fast asleep, an enormous snowy white bear climbs into Tilly's bedroom. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared.

The Bear is a heartwarming adaptation of Raymond Briggs’s magical picture book, full of dazzling puppetry, adventure and dreamy storytelling. So bring along your own bear, and join Tilly and her great big white friend at Brighton Dome on a wild and magical adventure.

After our children’s theatre shows, our young audiences have the opportunity to get crafty and make a keepsake to take home. Our team is on hand to lead the creativity, leaving adults free to sit back, relax and enjoy some coffee or cake.

The Montefiore Hospital and Gatwick Airport are helping us to make Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival more accessible for all.
