Catch them while you can…

Once again, some of the children’s shows are finishing this year on Sunday 19th August, slightly earlier than others…so if you’re still hoping to get out and about and see a few things, squeeze one of these in if you can ! My top tips out of shows finishing this week are:

Cat In The Hat – Bold set design based on the book and lots of interactive fun that little ones will love, and of course the beautiful rhyming story !

 

The Showstoppers Kids Show – Improvisation fun with these guys – come along with some great ideas and see them turned into a musical extravaganza…

Better Together – This sweet clowning piece about making friends and connections is sure to brighten your day !

 

Eaten – We loved meeting Lionel the lion last year and learning all about our digestive systems ! Definitely one to check out !

Denim: The Denim Juniors – An hour of being yourself, singing loud and proud and having lots of fun. Highly highly recommended- this drag queen quintet are sure to have you up and dancing !!

 

We’ve not seen it yet, but I’ve heard good things about this show finishing on the 19th too…:

David Baddiel’s AniMalcolm – Malcolm doesn’t like animals, which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip. And there he is, on the bus, heading to… oh no. A farm… full of animals!

Pleasance Kidzone 2018

Image result for pleasance kidzone 2018We all surely LOVE the Kidzone at the Pleasance – with the picnic tables, the toys, the puppet theatre, the fabulous arts and crafts that keep our kids busy and entertained whilst we grab a coffee at the cafe – it’s an oasis amongst the chaos and I for one, spend alot of time there during August !!!

This year, as ever, it’s back and jam packed with activities for children up to 10 years old, including the popular shrinkie badges and key rings, decopatch animals and foam clay goodies!

As always the arts and crafts are very reasonably priced and the tent is family run by such lovely people that you will just want to keep on returning!

 

 

A trip to the Kidzone can be combined with seeing one or two of the brilliant children’s shows at the Pleasance this year – they have 17 this year for us to choose from, so there is bound to be something for everyone !! Some top picks are :

Cat In The Hat – This lovable character is back to entertain us with his rhyming wit and mischievous exploits ! Energetic and fun, this is great for the wee ones !

 

The Bear – Adapted by Pins and Needles Productions, this looks fab – a big white bear climbs int Tilly’s bedroom – but she’s not scared. Featuring beautiful puppets, this looks set to wow…

 

Wilde CreaturesWilde Creatures – From the talented Tall Stories team, Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales are brought to life- we see the  pompous mayor, the petulant princess and the love-sick student compete to become the new town statue.

The Showstoppers' Kids Show The Showstoppers Kids Show – Embracing the mayhem that can occur when the kids get to decide, this improvised musical adventure is bound to be great fun !
