Children's TV is sometimes mind-numbing isn't it! I used to find Thomas & friends the worst and I'll be happy if I never have to hear his voice again! haha! There are a couple of kids TV shows that are actually ok for grown ups though and Ben & Holly is one such show. Steve and I never minded when the kids would watch this and I swear my step dad secretly still watches it by himself and has a right old laugh! We loved Ben & Holly so much that back in 2013 Jack and I went along to watch a performance at Whitley Bay Playhouse and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I can't believe how small he was back then!
Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom visit Newcastle | 18th & 19th March 2017
"Somewhere, hidden amongst thorny brambles is a little Kingdom where everyone is very, very small'
What to expect
The blurb:- During the show, Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston the Ladybird (who is the cutest thing you'll ever see) clean up his messy cave, they go on a trip into 'The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum, even plan a surprise birthday party for King Thistle, and oops, let’s hope there’s not another jelly flood! (spoiler - there probably is).
Join Ben and Holly, and their friends on this exciting, enchanting and magical musical adventure packed full of games, songs and laughter. This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family!
I remember the show being loads of fun for pre-schoolers and would definitely recommend to any Ben & Holly fans out there aged 0-5 years (and their grown ups). It's a fantastic first introduction to theatre. Don't forget to visit Meet & Treat across the road for a game of Guess Who and milkshakes before/after the show!
