Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live Show

My son and his friend were sat absorbed throughout the show, attention only breaking briefly to pop another sweet in their mouths.  Very interactive show, lots of opportunities to sing, dance and clap along with the cast (even encouraging the adults to get off their bottoms!).

Suitable for 12 + months but there were some babes in arms crying intermittently bless them, until the scene where the cast “sssshhh” and get us all to do the same, the babies followed suit and it was nice and peaceful afterwards lol!

The show was a pleasure to watch with more than a sprinkling of magic, great costumes and well thought out set design and props.  This is a perfect show for Ben and Holly fans or any child under 5 we would say.  My little elf was pleased to have made the journey to Venue Cymru to see it.  In his own fine words this is what he thought of it:

“Lovely, wonderful, beautiful.  I liked the jelly flood.  I want to go again”

We giggled about the slime from the snail, the burping frog and the king’s sudden hair growth!  Plenty of smiles and laughter and the good thing is there are plenty more performances until August, leaving lots of time to make sure you take your child for an enjoyable and fun filled experience.

The show lasts 1 hour 20 minutes including the interval, but this is long enough for this age range, so good value overall. 

Head over to their website for further information on venues and dates.

  1. Oh, lmol! I am in the process of organising A Little Kingdom Birthday Party for my son and stumbled on your page. The picture is so cute. Still trying to debate whether to turn the pool into a jelly flood....NOT going to happen!
