Have you ever imagined to stop time and be an eternal child?
Last week, I’ve been at The Troubadour White City Theatre to watch Peter Pan which is undoubtedly the most unforgettable National Theatre’s (Guardian) production of all times. What a production, what a scenery and what a soundtrack!
Personally, for me getting to see the play of a lifetime as Peter introduces us to his world of wonder with best friend Tinkerbell, the wild Lost Boys, and of course the terrifying Captain Hook is something that revives me my childhood memories.
The costumes are amazing, the choreography is faultless and theatre cast is sensational!
Peter Pan’s dreams reside within us as one of the biggest wishes of mankind. The fable of the child who never grew up is something that never gets out of time.
This classic has become a reference in the literature, in the cinema and in the theatre as well.
Regarding the venue itself, it’s amazing, it’s a place where you can actually feel that you’re the actor of a play, giving you the most fantastic theatre experience in London, in my modest opinion.
The Troubadour White City Theatre has just launched in July of this year a brand new venue at White City Place! The place is amazing and you can also go to the nearby building, at the Troubador Wembley Park Theatre to see other shows.
The performances began on the 22 July and run only through to 27 October 2019, so I were you, I’d take one day off just to enjoy the experience to see this production in August with the kids or if you don’t have kids and to have a more relaxing atmosphere, then go in September – October where it’s more quiet as school holidays will be finished by then.

One of the things I do is always to look for nearby attractions when I go to watch an event, then I can maximize my time and enjoy the most of the area without spending any £ on transport.
I suggest you to do plan your day ahead and before you watch Peter Pan at 2pm (1st session of the day) which lasts approximately 2h30 minutes, take a tour in surroundings area. GO and do the ITV Daytime Studios Tour. Step inside the world of ITV Daytime Television! Imagine going inside a TV working studio where many popular British shows are made like Good Morning Britain, Lorraine and Loose Women! If you’re lucky you will get discounted prices on your tickets from £22 per adult!
