I have a fabulous announcement for you all.. There is a brand new Peppa Pig live show coming to a theatre near you this Autumn and it’s aptly called PEPPA PIG’S SURPRISE!
The tour will be across the UK & Ireland between the 24th October and the 26th November initially, however more dates are to be announced. The show will tour for fifteen months and will include a sixth consecutive Peppa Pig Christmas West End run, which will be the perfect festive treat from some super cute puppets!
If you’re a regular reader of this blog you will know that we love Peppa Pig, and having reviewed the Peppa Pig Live show last year in Blackpool, we had a fabulous time! Gabriel and Willow both like the show, which is great for us all as it means we can all
have a shared experience of fun at the theatre, despite them both only being toddlers! (Although of course, almost four years old and ready for school
Gabriel is actually a big boy!) You can read our review of last year’s show here!
The show itself is about a lovely day where Peppa is playing outside with her friends. Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig have got a surprise for her and her younger brother George but no matter how hard they try, they cannot guess what it is.
Audiences will enjoy interactive fun, games and, of course, surprises. This charming, colourful new show features new songs and new life-size puppets. The show promises to be the perfect theatre show for all pre-schoolers, and is suitable for ages 3+ (however last year we took Willow age 19 months and she loved it!) Here are some photographs from the last few year’s shows, to give you an idea of how fantastic the costumes are, and how appealing they will be to your children!
Richard Lewis once again has adapted for stage episodes from the hit TV show, created by Astley Baker Davies, and he also directs. He has done the same for all three Peppa Pig live stage shows: Peppa Pig’s Party (2009 -2011), Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt (2011-2012) and Peppa Pig’s Big Splash (2013-2014).
In the next few months I will as usual be hosting a wonderful competition for my readers and their friends, where a family ticket to a show of your choice will be up for grabs, so watch this space! We will also be reviewing the show too, so we are very excited about that!
Why not keep social with Peppa and her friends? You can follow the show’s progress and keep up to date with news and competitions on the Peppa Pig Live Twitter account which is @peppapiglive You can visit the show’s website for further information too!
