The award-winning and bestselling author and illustrator, Liz Pichon, has confirmed she will be meeting fans and signing books at ‘Tom Gates Live on Stage’ in the Olympia Theatre on 3-6 July 2019.

“This truly amazing show brings my books wonderfully to life in a fantastically funny and visually mesmerising way. It’s a total feast for the eyes and ears and I couldn’t be prouder of it!” – Liz Pichon

Based on the best-selling books by Liz Pichon, this brand-new story arrives in the Olympia Theatre Dublin for the very first time from 3 to 6 July 2019.

Tom’s doing everything possible to stay out of trouble, but somehow, he’s got THREE sad faces on the school achievement chart! And getting another sad face means he can’t go on the SCHOOL TRIP! Moany Marcus Meldrew is making things worse and now Tom has annoyed his grumpy sister Delia. Can his best friend Derek help? Will Rooster the dog stop eating his homework?

Brought to you by the award-winning producers of Horrible Histories and Gangsta Granny, this show is pure fun for the whole family, whether you’re a lover of the books or new to Tom Gates and his friends.

Entertaining, funny and exceptionally feel-good, TOM GATES is jam-packed with Liz Pichon’s illustrations which are amazingly animated for the stage. With brilliantly catchy tunes and hilarious performances, you’re guaranteed to leave the theatre with a huge smile on your face. So, climb aboard this world premiere production as it magically transports you into Tom’s amazing world!

Liz will be signing books before the 7pm show on Friday 5th July and before the 2:30pm and 7pm show on Saturday 6th July.   You will need tickets to the show in order to attend the book signings.

My nine-year-old daughter, Aggie, really loved it. How many stars would she give it? “Five!”
