Pippi Longstocking's Birthday Bash

It's Pippi Longstocking's birthday!

You're invited to a birthday party like no other, as we celebrate 75 years of the strongest, most generous girl in the world.

Meet the brave, unconventional Swedish redhead who has inspired everyone from Michelle Obama and Madonna to ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and writer Lauren Child.

Expect the unexpected from Pippi and her friends, as you join in with rule-breaking fun and adventure.

This event is supported by The Astrid Lindgren Company and the Embassy of Sweden in London.

No, but it’s my birthday, isn’t it? That means I can give you birthday presents
