Enjoy a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious time with your childhood heroes
Way before the famous movie and the onstage musical, there was a book. Published between the 1930s and 1980s, P.L. Travers whipped out various stories on the alternative nanny with the magic twist, but it was predominantly the movie version with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke that made the story such an international success. The movie was released in 1964 and featured some iconic songs like "Chim Chim Cher-ee", "A Spoonful of Sugar" and the semi-nonsensical "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious". These songs formed a soundtrack of an entire generation and beyond and were far too good to not find their way to the stage. In 2004, the musical had its pre-run in Bristol before hitting the West End, with raving reviews. Even though it was the first Disney musical to open in the UK, it didn’t take Mary Poppins long to fly over to America and the stages of Broadway, where it premiered in 2006. From there, it conquered the world in no time and now belongs to the household repertoire of most international musical stages; and it is easy to understand why, or wouldn’t you want to spend a night filled with magic as Mary takes you in a magic sweet shop or on the rooftops of London? Listen to all your favourite Poppins songs and enjoy the few new additions in the wonderful score of this timeless classic. Tickets for Mary Poppins are on sale on StubHub, and we think it’s time to reunite with your childhood heroine.
Mary gets showered in accolades

It won Theatre Choreography and Best Actress in a Musical, as well as netting a Tony Award for Best Scenic Design. And the set design is rightfully praised, as it coaxes you into the magical world of the presumably most famous nanny of all time.
