Malory Towers

Based on the novels by Enid Blyton
Adapted and directed by Emma Rice
Co-produced by York Theatre Royal
In association with Bristol Old Vic


The windows shone. A green creeper climbed almost to the roof. It looked like an old-time castle. ‘My school!’ thought Darrell, and a little warm feeling came into her heart. ‘How lucky I am to be going to Malory Towers!’


Darrell Rivers is starting school with an eager mind and fierce heart. Unfortunately she also has a quick temper! Can she learn to tolerate the infuriating Gwendoline Lacey, or value the kind hearted Sally Hope? Can she save the school play and rescue terrified Mary Lou from the grip of a raging storm? If she can do these things anywhere, she will do them at Malory Towers!


Nostalgic, naughty and perfect for now, Malory Towers is the original ‘Girl Power’ story. Join us for high jinks, high drama and high spirits, all set to sensational live music and breathtaking animation. This is a show for girls, boys and all us grown-up children who still dream of midnight feasts and Cornish clifftops.


The show will premiere at The Passenger Shed in Bristol, which we’ll be transforming into our very own Malory Towers for the summer holidays. After that, it will tour to Cambridge, York, Exeter, Manchester and Oxford.

Tickets are on sale now for shows in York, Oxford and Manchester, with other dates coming soon.
