The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch

4.7 (3) · Family Theatre

Mildred Hubble was an ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches.

“There’s lots of fun family-friendly options at the theatre this summer, and if you’re a fan of mischief & magic then this adaption of the classic children’s novel should be right at the top of your list.”


Now in her final year, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest and most important adventure yet…

Jealous Ethel Hallow is always out to spoil Mildred’s fun. Miss Hardbroom is opposed to all fun in general. And just as Mildred sparks some inevitable mayhem certain to upset them both, an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that could threaten not just the Academy, but the whole world.

Featuring all of Jill Murphy’s beloved characters, this action-packed new stage adaptation by Emma Reeves is directed by Theresa Heskins (2017 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People) and includes original songs, music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!

Age Recommendation: 7+
