Peppa Pig’s Surprise Live Tour 2015/2016

On Saturday as an early Mother’s Day treat for me (!) I took the girls to see Peppa Pig’s Surprise at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton.

The theatre was full of noise and excitement from the moment we got there at 1pm until it finished at just after 2.15. There were babes in arms, toddlers, pre-schoolers, older brothers and sisters, parents and grandparents. It was lots and lot of noisy fun.

The story (if it matters – as to be honest I think mine would watch anything with Peppa and George in) was loosely based on the episode where Peppa & George have a surprise trip to the beach. I’m sure you all know the one, where they bury Daddy Pig and nearly forget him when they leave to go home.  The first act was a game of hide and seek in which ‘Katy’ their real life friend tries to find them all, followed by a scene in the bath and then bed time with stories etc. Daddy Pig and Mummy Pig (adults in full sized costumes) explain they have to be good and go to bed as tomorrow they will go on a surprise trip to the beach. Peppa and George and all their friends including Danny Dog, Susie Sheep and Pedro Pony are all smaller puppets moved around by actors in black which even I after a time didn’t really notice.

Peppa Pig

Notwithstanding the fact that the girls at Joe 5,4 and 4 could seemingly tell me exactly what was going to happen at every turn, they had a fantastic time. They sang along to all the songs, danced in the aisles and glared enviously as everyone’s glow sticks/flashing toys. We get to go to the theatre so much I say an automatic no to additional treats which could make our trip seriously expensive, but believe me at any Peppa Show there is quite a significant amount of plastic to buy!

The show is just over an hour and 15 minutes long including the interval and for the younger members of the audience this is the perfect amount of time. I recall taking mine to see a Peppa show when they were around 2 and it was a perfect introduction to live theatre. No-one is quiet, everyone is chatting loudly and there are babies crying everywhere. I know for some this sounds terrible, but as a parent it means you can relax as Somewhere in the audience a child is being just as loud as yours so there is nothing to worry about!

For anyone wanting a light introduction to childrens theatre you can’t beat Peppa Pigs Surprise!

Suggested age is 3+.

We visited the one in New Brighton but the tour really is taking in most of the country so take a look and find the one near you!
