A pigeon, a bus and a delicious lunch!

During half term we were kindly invited to the Marlowe Theatre to see ‘Don’t let the Pigeon Drive the Bus’.


My son loved the show which was wonderfully interactive and full of catchy songs (the kind you find yourself humming much later on!).

The story followed a friendly bus driver who was worried that the pigeon he kept meeting would try and drive his bus.

The audience were repeatedly left in charge of the bus and instructed to not let the pigeon drive the bus – something the children all took very seriously!

We were upstairs in the studio for this show, which was a new experience for us.

It is the prefect space for a children’s show as everyone is close to the action.

Afterwards we popped downstairs and sampled the lunch in the Green Room.

Next time you’re in Canterbury and fancy a bite to eat I can definitely recommend a visit here.

The adult menu was lovely and varied and the toasted sandwiches we ordered were delicious!


What was particularly good though was the children’s menu. You can choose between two or three courses for less than £6 and all the different options sounded tasty and I think most children would be happy with the choices available.

We opted for the two courses and had a starter (tomato soup) and a pudding (chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream).

And for under £5 we were impressed and it was all eaten, which tells it’s own story!

The Green Room is spacious so plenty of room for my buggy and the comfy booth style red leather seats were also a hit with the baby!

A special mention for the lovely staff too – so friendly and welcoming.

As always, we had a great time at the Marlowe Theatre and are looking forward to our next visit.

There are some great shows coming up for children – in particular the Dinosaur Zoo show looks excellent! We’ll most definitely be booking our tickets for that soon!
