The magical tale of the boy who never grew up!

When Peter Pan returns to the home of the Darling family to retrieve his lost shadow, he’s not expecting to meet Wendy, or that she’ll join him on a trip to Neverland for the adventure of a lifetime.

As they soar over the streets of London (yes, they really can fly!), Wendy can only imagine the fun she’s going to have with Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys, and the danger that awaits her in the form of the dastardly Captain Hook and his band of pirates!

Daniel Buckroyd (Dick Whittington, The Butterfly Lion) and Matthew Cullum (Wind in the Willows, James and the Giant Peach) team up to bring J. M. Barrie’s much loved masterpiece to life this Summer.

Will Wendy escape the clutches of Captain Hook and make it back home? Can Peter and the Lost Boys ever capture the pirate ship? And will Captain Hook finally silence the ‘Tick-Tock’ of the Crocodile that always follows him?

Join Peter, Wendy and all your favourite characters from the classic story for a magical, musical adventure that is guaranteed to delight young and old!

Tickets are now available for the Peter Pan Backstage Tour and Touch Tour.

Written by J. M. Barrie

Why not treat yourself to some lunch at Food @ the Mercury before your matinee performance?

Our lunch menu is available from 90 minutes before the performance start time and includes cooked dishes and sandwiches. We also offer a children’s menu and snacks menu. So that you can keep your options open, we won’t take your menu choice in advance, but we do recommend you book a table.
