Harry Hill’s KIDZ SHOW: How To Be Funny - For KIDS!

Harry Hill joins us for this exclusive warm-up show to celebrate the launch of his new book Matt Millz Stands Up!

Is your kid a bit of a joker? Do you have more than one comedian in the family?

This is a brand new, family-fun-filled show from Harry Hill the star of ITV’s Alien Fun Capsule and TV Burp and the voice of You’ve Been Framed.

This show is jam packed with laughs and ties in with the release of Matt Millz Stands Up, the sequel to Harry’s critically lauded kids’ book, Matt Millz, about the world’s youngest comedian who dreams of making it big.

This show will offer hints, tips and anecdotes for children who fancy themselves as a bit of a comic, with the self-styled floppy collared loon Harry Hill on hand to run through his dos and don’ts, as well as offering kids the chance to try out their comedy skills.

So kids – bring your best jokes! And if you’re sitting near the front, bring your umbrella! Expect big laughs, practical tips and bucket loads of water silliness.

Harry Hill is a national treasure who has created some of the most successful TV shows of the last two decades, collecting three BAFTAs, eight British Comedy Awards and a Golden Rose of Montreux along the way.

Age guidance ages 6 – 16 years.

The Fir Tree

by Tove Jansson

From Tales in Moominvalley

The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.

Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.

Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.

Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.

The Enormous Turnip

Living in their tiny shed amongst the garden tools, Mr and Mrs Chickweed’s prize-winning vegetables have taken over everything!

Before they retire, they can’t resist planting one last seed.

But no one knew that a vegetable could grow bigger than the cat, the dog and you and me put together! It’s gigantic, it’s roots are under the house and it’s taking over!

Unswerving energy, eccentric puppetry and live music in a re-potted version of this world-famous and much loved children’s story!

WHY? ‘Puppetry, live music and good old-fashioned charm sprout up left, right and centre’ The Stage
