Illyria returns with thier hit 2018 Dr Doolittle show. We’re delighted to welcome this funny, much-loved and exciting family adventure to the Kymin Gardens this August.

When Dr John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide.

Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.

Please bring low-backed chairs or blankets and dress warm!

Feel free to to bring a picnic (no BBQs sorry), however, light refreshments will be available to purchase on the day.​

Running time (approx): 1hr 50mins (inc 20 minute interval)
