Instagram alert: Visit Miss Trunchball’s chair in Cabot Circus this half-term

Posted on: 12 Apr 2019

Epic Instagram opportunity alert! Between 17 and 30 April, Cabot Circus will welcome Miss Trunchball’s terrifying chair from Matilda The Musical for shoppers to grab a snap with, if they dare…


To celebrate the announcement of an extra matinee performance of the highly-anticipated Matilda The Musical at The Bristol Hippodrome, The Royal Shakespeare Company has partnered with Cabot Circus for a very special installation.

Do you dare to visit the chair?

The monstrous Miss Trunchball’s chair, which features centre-stage in the critically-acclaimed musical, took over 200 hours to make. Now, for a limited time, the iconic creation will be displayed on Brigstowe Street in Cabot Circus from Tuesday 16 April to Tuesday 30 April. We love a half-term treat.


Accompanying the installation comes confirmation of an extra date for Matilda The Musical. To counteract phenomenally high-demand, tickets for an additional matinee show on Friday 31 May have just gone on sale! Grab one here.


The Hippodrome will be home to Matilda The Musical between May 7 and June 8 2019. There’s limited tickets available throughout the residency, but as ever, don’t them to hang around for long. You can browse ticket availability here.


Winner of 95 international awards, The Musical has now enjoyed nearly a decade on stage. It’s a West-End favourite! Don't miss out. 

Contact The Bristol Hippodrome's box office on 0844 871 3012. The Bristol Hippodrome is located: St Augustine's Parade, Bristol BS1 4UZ.
