Tom's Midnight Garden | Dover

When Tom is exiled to his aunt and uncle’s dreary flat as his brother recovers from measles, he fears that his holidays are doomed. But the vast old house hides enchanting and wondrous secrets, and the grandfather clock is striking 13…

Frankly Speaking Productions presents Tom’s Midnight Garden, an original ballet production adapted from Philippa Pearce’s classic novel — widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest works of children’s literature ever written.

Join us this summer outdoors amongst towering trees and flower beds in full bloom, for the story of a garden that only exists on the thirteenth chime, and the powerful, enduring friendship that two children find there.

The event is completely free of charge, with thanks to the generous sponsorship of Dover Town Council.

Tom’s Midnight Garden is an open air production, so please come prepared for the weather. The show will go on come rain or shine! Please note that seating is not provided so please feel free to bring picnic blankets / chairs to sit on as you enjoy the performance. Picnics are welcome from half an hour before the performance start time.
