Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
A classic and fun theatre show for the whole family to enjoy!
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's Origin
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was originally built in 1921 by Count Louis Zborowski, perhaps the best known amateur racing driver of his time, who lived at a large country house, near Canterbury in Kent. The son of a Polish Count and American mother, Zborowski was an eccentric gentleman wealthy enough to own and race many cars both in Europe and America. At Higham, along with his engineer Captain Clive Gallop, he built four aero-engined cars and called three of them Chitty Bang Bang.
Chitty 1 was the first amateur aero-engined to achieve great fame at Brooklands race track. Chitty 2 was constructed in the Summer of the same year, similar to the first car but with a shorter wheelbase, an early Mercedes chassis and an 18.8 litre Benz BZ IV series aero-engine. Both Chittys ran at the autumn 1921 Brooklands meeting but for various reasons neither was successful on the day.
The Song is nominated with an Oscar
With sensational sets, stunning special effects and brimming with memorable songs by the Sherman Brothers including Truly Scrumptious, Toot Sweets, Hushabye Mountain and its Oscar-nominated title song Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, this is the ultimate High-Flying Stage Musical.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang arrives at the West End
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang promises to be the most exciting theatrical event of the year. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang started life as the very personal dream-child of "Cubby" Broccoli but soon became the pet baby of the creative team he gathered around him and the entire 120 man British film crew too. Fleming had written the James Bond novels as well as the book for Chitty and Broccoli owned the rights to all. At the time Chitty was heralded as the largest musical ever filmed in England. And now, 34 years later, the largest musical ever staged in London's West End is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
