#WIN tickets to see Elmer The Patchwork Elephant at Richmond Theatre

Elmer the Patchwork ElephantHello again my lovelies! Hot off the heels of yesterday’s massive kitchen gadget giveaway I have another lovely giveaway to share with you. Hopefully it will help brighten up the dull and dreary time that is January! If your littles LOVE everybody’s favourite elephant – Elmer The Patchwork Elephant – then this one is for you…

What’s this all about?

I’m excited to let you know that Elmer The Patchwork Elephant is coming to our local theatre – Richmond Theatre.  I wanted to give you all a sneak peak of what you can expect with a little preview plus give you a chance to win a lovely afternoon at the theatre to see it!

Who is Elmer anyway?

Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show is based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee, that celebrates its 30th Birthday this year. It promises to be a fantastic afternoon of merrymaking, a tribute to individuality which will light up your life with the power of laughter!

Expect humour and puppets!

Elephants, as everyone knows, are big, have trunks, and are grey. But Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colours! His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd.

Featuring a menagerie of 21 loveable puppets, Elmer The Patchwork Elephant tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but ultimately realising that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.Elmer the Patchwork Elephant

Just be yourself

The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself – something which I couldn’t get behind more and one that is hugely beneficial for our children. Combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, this all makes Elmer a great show for children of all ages.

I’m super excited to see it with my daughter and know that like every other production we’ve see at Richmond Theatre (see our writings on Peppa Pig , Guess How Much I Love You and Cirque Berserk!) it will be such a lovely experience for all.

The show dates are Tuesday 5th February at 1pm & 3pm and Wednesday 6th February at 10am & 12pm and can be booked here.

WIN 4 tickets to a performance of your choice to Elmer The Patchwork Elephant at Richmond Theatre on our giveaways page


  1. I just wanted to check the closing date on this competition to win tickets. Your write-up says that the show is on in early February, but the Rafflecopter widget shows the competition ending some time in March. Please can you clarify.

  2. My two adore Elmer esp my little boy who insists on naming ever colour square by square every time we see him on the page we tried painting one day and I thought – ooo let’s paint an Elmer so we can use lots of colours prob was that my darling son decided to paint himself…..”green blob, blue blob, need some red Mummy – now I’m Elmer too” Awesome! Would love to see it on stage as I think it would bring it so nicely to life and a little more cleanly than painting yourself !’

  3. Wow what a great looking show! This is definitely something my little boy would enjoy, we have many Elmer books and toys! Wish the Richmond Theatre wasnt so far away from us! Caitylis x x

  4. Elmer would be a huge hit with my friends kids. I’l have to give them the heads up, as this sounds like a fab giveaway xx

  5. All of us, the message is wonderful and it’s easy for very young children to understand and hopefully keep with them as they grow older
