I have just seen the press release for this show. I was not sure at first with youngest already being 3 but I watched a video of a previous show and he was chomping at the bit, begging for us to take him. I think I might have underestimated the attraction of Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and the gang! He asked to ring daddy to demand we go… he was obviously very persuasive as we are now booked to go! I must admit I am a little bit excited myself, because the video does make it look extremely appealing. For one what is not to love about watching an event in a giant inflatable showdome! Instant cool factor just for that!
On stage you will find full-sized costumes, enchanting music, magical puppets and spectacular panoramic projections, creating an immersive theatrical experience to make audiences feel they are actually entering the magical world of the TV show In the Night Garden (oh and did I mention its in a showdome!!!). All this for as little as £10 a ticket! If your child has a birthday coming up in the next few months this might be a much cheaper alternative to an expensive party! Invite their closest friend and have no mess to clear up afterwards, don’t tell me your not slightly tempted!
The show lasts just under an hour, which is probably the perfect time for a preschooler, as they tend to get restless with shows that last much longer, which can be slightly stressful for us parents! When you are trying to convince your little one that there seat is just right for them and you may as well be invisible for the notice they take of you (okay maybe that’s just my experience!).
There are two shows to pick from, so if you’re feeling particularly flush why not let them experience both. In the Ninky Nonk show, Igglepiggle loses his blanket and all his friends help him find it. In the Pinky Ponk show, Makka Pakka washes everyone’s faces, until his sponge gets stuck in Upsy Daisy’s megaphone!
You can book tickets from the website http://www.nightgardenlive.com but I have been offered a standard family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) for one of the London shows (The O2, Old Deer Park or Brent Cross) for a very lucky follower of my blog.
