Galloping Back To Stages

Public On Sale - Thursday, February 28th

The stunning international smash hit and audience favourite War Horse gallops back onto stages across the country. Based on Michael Morpurgo's heartbreaking novel and featuring the incredible talents of South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, War Horse has conquered the globe with its breathtaking fusion of drama and innovative awe-inspiring puppetry.

With its incredible life-sized, life-like horse puppets and moving plot, War Horse stole the show, quite literally, when it first opened back on the West End in 2009 - even warranting a royal visit by the Queen herself! Since then, War Horse has toured extensively, including places like China, the USA, and Belgium, bringing Michael Morpurgo's heartbreaking story to the far corners of the globe.

What is War Horse about?

World War One has just begun and young Albert's beloved horse Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. As Joey becomes caught up in enemy fire, fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving both British and German soldiers, experiencing peace on a French farm, before finding himself stranded in No Man's Land. Meanwhile, at home in England, Albert cannot forget Joey, and so illegally enlists in the army, embarking on a dangerous mission to France to bring him back home.
