the queens knickers, talegate theatre family show for the jubileeYou are invited to this royal romp of a musical celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

It’s a busy year for the Queen – she has lots of important events to attend. But disaster has struck the palace as Her Majesty’s knickers have been nicked- call the royal guard! Meanwhile, a little girl is wondering what knickers Her Majesty will choose to wear on a school visit! Will they be her ‘at home’ knickers – adorned with corgis – or her ‘garden party’ knickers, or perhaps her woolly Balmoral ones…?

TaleGate Theatre Productions, producers of ‘Father Christmas Needs A Wee!’ and ‘The Giant’s Loo Roll’ bring you this regal children’s musical full of songs, silliness and a corgi or two in this new musical adaptation of Nicholas Allan’s best selling book ‘The Queen’s Knickers’. Shows in our area during May half term:

  • 30th May – Hull, Heartlands Park 
  • 31st May – Pocklington Arts Centre
  • 3rd June – Bridlington Spa

And returning to our area on 24th July – Parkway Beverley
