This summer, Michael Rosen’s much-loved poem, Chocolate Cake – also a gorgeously illustrated picture book – is transformed for the stage by Polka Theatre, a UK theatre dedicated exclusively to children. It’s the latest wonderful piece of family theatre from the people who created We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and How to Hide a Lion, don’t you know? Following the adventures of two brothers and the night-time disappearance of a chocolate cake, this five-star “deliciously moreish” show (The Stage) is a delight from start to finish, chock-full of music, songs, film and animation, and sure to have the family shouting “more please!” on the way home. Tickets £12; family ticket £40 (two adults, two kids or one adult, three kids).

Chocolate Cake, Tuesday 24 – Saturday 28 July at Bristol Old Vic.
