Best Bits

The Velveteen Rabbit is a heart-warming story about a very shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day, he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true...

  • Early bird tickets, limited availability 
  • A story beloved by kids and adults worldwide about the transforming power of love
  • Stuffed full  of magic and charm
  • Based on one of the best-loved children's books of all time
  • A bold and adventure-filled adaptation of the classic American tale
  • Featuring a real, live rabbit!
  • Highly acclaimed production, it's the perfect Easter treat

LittleBird Top Tip: The Unicorn Theatre is in a fabulous location, set back from the Thames so you’re a hop, skip and a jump from the HMS Belfast. Tower Bridge is to your right and the Tower of London across the river. There are lots of eateries too if tummies start to rumble including Leon, dim t and Strada.
