Dean Close Pre-Prep School sponsors Family Ticket at Everyman Theatre


The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her Mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

The Everyman Theatre is delighted to announce an innovative, new sponsorship agreement with Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School, who are sponsoring the Family Ticket for The Tiger Who Came To Tea, which roars into the theatre over Half Term.

Direct from a smash hit West End season, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a musical play, adapted from the beloved children’s picture book by Judith Kerr and returns to the stage to celebrate its 50th birthday.

Directed and adapted by David Wood OBE, the country’s leading writer and director of children’s plays, this is a delightful family show, packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos!  The Dean Close Pre-Preparatory Family Ticket is available for all performances at the reduced rate of £52 for 4 tickets (normal ticket price £14.50 per person).  Shows run from Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd February.  Performance times vary and for more information and to book, visit

Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School is set in beautiful grounds, close to the centre of Cheltenham in a modern, purpose-built building, benefitting from excellent facilities and resources. The school aims to provide a broad, exciting, child-centred curriculum which will stimulate young minds and ignite a lifelong love of learning, enabling children to develop and flourish and fulfil their potential.
Headmistress, Dr Carolyn Shelley explained, “We are thrilled to be sponsoring the Family Ticket for The Tiger Who came for Tea -  it is one of our favourite books. The children have been busy creating a menu for the tiger and colouring in a tiger picture to win tickets to this wonderful event. At Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School we aim to create as many irresistible learning opportunities as we possibly can, creating experiences where children are so engaged that they cannot wait to learn more. What better way to create a love of books and reading from an early age than by watching a favourite story being performed on the stage? We are very much looking forward to watching this wonderful production.”

Mark Goucher, Chief Executive at the Everyman added “ We are delighted to welcome Dean Close Pre-Preparatory School to join our growing list of business supporters and sponsors.  This is such an ideal link with the school and a perfect fit for them. I’m sure the show will be a big hit, not only with their pupils but with everyone else who comes along to enjoy this charming children’s play.”
