A stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson's What the Ladybird Heard will run in the West End this summer. What the Ladybird Heard is at the Palace Theatre from 15 July - 29 August.

First published in 2009, What the Ladybird Heard sees a group of farmyard animals trying to save the day and defeat villains. The show previously ran at the Lyric Theatre in 2017.

The original idea for What the Ladybird Heard was born from a countryside walk that Donaldson had with her son. The production has been created in consultation with Donaldson, whose writing credits include The Gruffalo and The Room on the Broom, as well as original illustrator Lydia Monk.

Nikita Johal, Roddy Lynch, James Mateo-Salt, Matthew McPherson and Abigail Middleton will star in What the Ladybird Heard.

Producer Kenny Wax comments: "I am delighted that What the Ladybird Heard is returning to the stage and I'm looking forward to welcoming family audiences back to the West End for a much needed treat this summer. It will be wonderful to see smiling faces in the glorious Palace Theatre once again."

What the Ladybird Heard is suitable for children aged 3 and over.
