peter-pan2This summer, Kensington Gardens plays host to a unique and remarkable theatre event – a spectacular new stage production of J. M. Barrie’s classic story, performed in a specially commissioned, state-of-the-art Theatre Pavilion.

For the first time in 100 years, Peter Pan is coming home…  Peter Pan comes to Kensington Gardens

About the Neverland Pavilion
A specially commissioned temporary structure in the heart of Kensington Gardens, the Neverland Pavilion will offer theatregoers a breathtaking live experience.  Get Close to the Action in the Neverland Pavilion.  With over 1000 seats in the round, this state-of-the-art auditorium offers unimpeded views for everyone.   You’ll be able to fly with Peter to Neverland, stand on the deck of Hook’s ship, and soar high over Kensington Gardens in the heart of Edwardian London.

It Never Rains in Neverland!  The Pavilion is 100% rainproof so despite those unpredictable British summers, you can be confident that the show will go on whatever the weather!

Peter Pan Kensington Gardens is suitable for children aged five and over.   If you’re younger than this, you’re not going to be turned away or fed to the crocodiles. It’s up to your parents to decide if you’re mature enough to fly with Peter Pan, won’t be scared watching him fight Captain Hook, and will enjoy the whole two-hour show
