Pick Me Up brings Tom’s Midnight Garden to York
Pick Me Up Theatre is delighted to present the magical stage version of Tom’s Midnight Garden – the award-winning children’s classic by Philippa Pearce.
When his brother catches the measles, Tom is sent to stay with his Aunt Gwen and Uncle Alan in their upstairs flat in a big house.
Tom isn't allowed out to play, in case he is infectious, but it wouldn't matter much anyway – the big house has no garden any more, having been sold for building land.
Tom is lonely and bored with little to do until one night he hears the grandfather clock in the hallway strike thirteen.
He creeps downstairs to investigate, throws open the back door, and where there used to be just a small yard he discovers a large and beautiful garden.
Clearly, something strange is happening; every time the clock strikes thirteen Tom is transported back in time to the secret garden where he befriends an unhappy Victorian orphan, Hatty, and they have a series of adventures. But just what is the secret behind the magical midnight garden?
Bring the whole family to this wonderful production @41Monkgate, March 13-21. 🎟️ Tickets and info Tickets
Tickets also available in person from York Gin 12, Pavement, and York Theatre Royal Box Office, 01904 623568.

Sunday 19 - Thursday 23 April 2020
Venue: York Hospital Social Club
Based on the Discworld Novel by Terry Pratchett and adapted by Stephen Briggs. "Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork – not the old fashioned, grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them. And now, the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.
The prospect of the Big Match draws in a likely lad with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt. (No one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too.)
As the match approaches, four lives are entangled and changed for ever. Because the thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football.
Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!"
Performances Sunday 19th April 2.30pm and Thursday 23rd April 7pm. All tickets 10.00
