Celebrate Christmas with Peter Pan at The O2

In summer 2009, London’s historic Kensington Gardens played host to a unique and remarkable event – a spectacular new stage production of J. M. Barrie’s classic story.

Now, after sell-out success, Peter Pan flies into the O2 for a strictly limited Christmas season. Performed ‘in the round’ in a specially commissioned, state-of-the-art 1300 seat theatre-tent, this acclaimed production includes a breathtaking 360 degree projected scenic design.

Please Note: Young children are welcome, but true to the original story, there will be moments that are a little scary for very young children so parental discretion / guidance may be required for children who are under 5. All children must have a paid ticket. Babies in arms will not be admitted.

The Neverland Pavillion is a 10 minute walk away from Greenwich Underground station, so please allow good time to get to the venue.

“An awfully big adventure. Breathtaking.” Daily Mail.

“The atmosphere is perfect, the costumes outstanding. The dream world of Neverland is sensationally complemented by William Dudley’s cinematic projections. How we cheered!” The Independent.

“A joyous flight of fancy” The London Paper.
 

‘The world’s first fully 360-degree projection for live theatre.’ Time Out.
