Most Beds are Beds for sleeping and resting, but the best Beds are much more interesting!

Curl up and get comfy for a bedtime story like no other. Let us take you on a journey sprinkled with fantasy and escapism, where you will meet elephants, macaws and parakeets. Venture underwater, to the North Pole and even outer space without ever leaving the comfort of your own bed. Beds come in all shapes and sizes, from cots to king-sized, and some you might never have heard of before – see if you can discover them all along the way.

This enchanting poem by Sylvia Plath, written for her own children, is brought to life in a special show for babies and toddlers.

The Bed is aimed at toddlers aged 1 ½ – 3 years.

We also have a version of the show for babies (6 – 18 months). Click here for more information.
