A summer of family fun at Wyre’s theatres

Published: Wednesday, 11 June 2014


If you’re looking for things to do with the kids this summer be sure to check out the great line up of family friendly shows coming to Wyre’s two theatres - Marine Hall and Thornton Little Theatre.

First up at Marine Hall is TV favourite The Sooty Show. Direct from CITV, Sooty heads into town in a fabulous new show to delight the whole family. Joining the nation’s favourite bear will be Sweep, Soo and Sooty's TV Partner Richard Cadell who will be attempting to keep Sooty from getting up to mischief. Boy will he have his hands full!

It's Sooty's birthday party and things aren't going to plan. Sooty and Sweep get messy baking the birthday cake and will Soo ever decide which dress to wear?

Special party guests include legendary Sooty favourites Butch the bulldog and Ramsbottom the snake.

So join in with all the fun and games at Sooty's birthday party. There's also a chance to meet Richard and Sooty after the show. A spectacular mix of magic, music and mess it promises to be a real treat for children and a dose of nostalgia for parents. Due to popular demand there are two shows on Wednesday 30 July at 11am and 2.30pm. Tickets are £10 or family of four tickets are just £35.

Next up at Marine Hall is the dazzling Let’s Dance on Ice on Saturday 2 August, brought to you by Ice Glitz Productions, the same team behind the venue’s Winter Wonderland on Ice last year.
