The hugely popular Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom theatre production takes to the road again for a second UK & Ireland tour this year. A BAFTA award-winning TV animation, Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom comes from the makers of Peppa Pig and was produced for the stage by top children’s theatre producers Fiery Light Productions whose growing stable of work – which includes the stage adaptions of Peppa Pig and Octonauts – has now been seen by millions of children across the UK over recent years. This stage version toured 2012 – 2013 and now returns for a 45-theatre engagement, opening at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford on 26 March 2015 and runs until 6th September.
We are huge fans of Ben and Holly, my youngest three have watched the show since they were babies and I believe we’ve seen every single episode, multiple times! Kids are drawn to it, the engaging loveable characters, the simple animation and the wonderful bright colours. It’s one of those kids programmes you don’t mind them watching, it’s adorable and even I could sit and watch back to back episodes!
In this exciting new musical adventure, Ben and Holly have fun helping Gaston clean up his messy cave; they go on a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum; and still have time to plan a surprise for King Elf’s birthday party, complete with an unplanned jelly flood.
We will definitely be taking a visit to the magical, enchanting Little Kingdom, where the beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight any family. The show will be packed with fun and games too!
You can usually find Ben and Holly on Nick Jr and on Channel 5’s Milkshake. It’s aimed predominantly at pre-schoolers but I think older children love it too, even if they don’t like to admit it! The series won a BAFTA award for Best Pre-School Animation in 2009 and a British Animation Award for Best Pre-School Series in 2012.
