The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle


Illyria return to Brantwood to perform Hugh Lofting’s children’s classic.

Following the phenomenal success of 2018’s tour of The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle, we’re delving back into Hugh Lofting’s amazing stories to bring you a brand-new musical adaptation of the Doctor’s FURTHER adventures with Jip the Dog, Dab Dab the Duck, Gub Gub the Pig, Polynesia the Parrot. Where in the world will they go? Will they even stay on this world?! Which new animals will they help along the way? Will the Rats still have pithy observations to make? Is Gub Gub still dreaming about cake?

As in our 2018 production, The FURTHER Adventures of Doctor Dolittle features a fully orchestrated score, amazing puppets and a plethora of songs that our audiences will be singing along to for years to come, thanks to our cast-recording CDs.

Perfect summer fun for everyone aged 5+.

Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

Held in Brantwood’s lakeside meadow.  Please bring seating/rug. The Terrace Cafe will be open for snacks, hot drinks and alcoholic beverages.  Tickets: Ad £13.50, Child/Student £8.50 (4-18 years), under 4s free.
