AWARD-winning CBeebies show Bing is heading out on its first ever live tour, including a stop at The Kings Theatre later this month.

Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories by pretending, dressing-up and singing songs. Flop and Amma are there to help, but in this magical world of make-believe things don’t always go according to plan.

The CBeebies animated favourites are brought to life in a new stage production full of fun, laughter, music and magical puppetry. Bing Live! is an ideal first theatre trip for preschoolers and their families.

Bing Live! is produced by Minor Entertainment (In the Night Garden Live) and directed by Will Tuckett, guest principal character artist of the Royal Ballet, whose production of Wind in the Willows won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2014.

Celebrating the joyful, messy, reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments that little ones will recognise, whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy. 

The series has won an International Emmy Award in the Kids’ Pre-School category in 2016, a Writer’s Guild Award and a Bafta nomination for Best Pre-School Series.                                                                     

Andrew Collier, creative director of Minor Entertainment, said: We’re thrilled to be bringing Bing to the stage – we know families throughout the UK love Bing as much as we do, and it’s wonderful to see children’s faces light up when they meet him at the theatre for the first time.’

The show is at the Southsea theatre on November 24 at 1pm and 4pm, and November 25 at 10am and 1pm. Go to kingsportsmouth.co.uk.
