Michelin star restaurant, Purnell’s, had an unexpected furry visitor this week when the star of Town Hall Symphony Hall’s Christmas show, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, came to visit.
Along with the rest of the cast, the Tiger sat down for a spot of tea and petit fours with Celebrity Chef, Glynn Purnell, ahead of the show’s run starting at Town Hall next week.
Speaking after the visit, Glynn Purnell said;
It was fantastic to be able to welcome The Tiger Who Came to Tea company to Purnell’s for tea! I wrote my first children’s book The Magical Adventures of Whoops the Wonder Dog_ this year, and it would be incredible to imagine it being as well loved and held in the same high regard as the classic that is The Tiger Who Came to Tea. It was extra special to be able to invite the cast to the restaurant in what is the 50th anniversary of the book, and the 10th anniversary of the play. I can’t wait to take my family to Town Hall Birmingham over the festive period to see my tea party guests on stage!
The Tiger Who Came to Tea runs from Wednesday 26th December – Sunday 13th January. Tickets can be purchased via the THSH website, by calling 0121 780 3333 or at Symphony Hall box office.
