Presented by Metta Theatre

Spectacular street-dance and breathtaking circus combine to bring Kipling's classic tale crashing into the 21st Century. Fresh from its international tour, award winning Metta Theatre's critically acclaimed production of Jungle Book will delight the whole family.

Mowgli is finding her way in the urban jungle. With a beat-loving bin man Baloo, graffiti artist Bagheera and a skateboarding Wolf crew, this heart-warming coming of age story will astonish and amaze.

Choreographed by Kendra J Horsburgh (BirdGang Dance Company, Into the Hoods, Sadler's Wells and Blaze, International Tour) and featuring jaw-dropping tricks from an extraordinary cast of international performers, this is a show for everyone from 8 to 108.

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our front of house King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our new Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Click here for more information and updates on our Theatre entrance.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.

For more information on accessibility, ticket collection, our Backstage Bar, arrival and drop-off at our Theatre plus updates on our redevelopment, click here.
