Errol’s Garden is Growing in South London

Share this article

“I wish I could have a garden of my own, but all I see out there is concrete and pavement and more concrete…” 

Errol loves plants so much that he has them growing out of every pot, pan, and teacup he can find in his small flat. But he knows that plants need water, sunlight, and space. They need a garden. 

Longing to give his plants a proper home, Errol and his sister Tia resolve to transform their neglected rooftop into a beautiful community garden. But first, they must convince everyone in the flats to pitch in and help. Grumpy neighbours and garden pests may stand in their way, but Errol is determined to make his dream a reality. 

Filled with catchy songs, imagination, and a passion for plants, Errol’s Garden is a fun interactive musical for children aged 3–8 and their grownups and its tour will take in three South London theatres. 

Golden Toad Theatre is a theatre company and charity led by Jen Green and Caroline Wigmore creating vibrant, original musicals to educate and entertain children, young people, and families: “We firmly believe that musicals for young people deserve the same time, care, and attention as adult musical theatre” and since their foundation in 2020 have produced three new musicals, with several others in development, with this ethos at the heart. 

Theatre Peckham 13-14 July; 11am & 3pm, from £5.


New Wimbledon Theatre 26 – 28 July From £10


Greenwich Theatre 12 August 12pm & 3pm, From £8.50

Running time: 50 minutes. Age: 3-8.
