Location: Birmingham Town Hall
Event: The Very Hungry Caterpillar Production
Price: £12.50 a ticket. But with thanks to @tobecomemum
we got a 2-4-1 code from her blog (check her out, she's great). .
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a story created in 1969 by Eric Carle. It is that popular, it has sold over 43 million copies worldwide. And being such a timeless classic it has been turned into a theatre production for young children.
Me, Mr Trips and our girls (aged 16 months and 4) went along to the production at Birmingham Town Hall today. It featured a menagerie of 75 loveable puppets and carefully adapted 3 other Eric Carle stories. It started with The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse which was both my daughters favourites as they laughed and chuckled hysterically through it. Then it was Mister Seahorse, followed by The Very Lonely Firefly and finishing with the much enjoyed The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The cast were great at engaging the children and our two girls really enjoyed the show. .
If you get chance to go to one of the future shows during the UK tour, I really recommend it. It's coming to #bexhillonsea #basingstoke #kingston #york #hertfordshire #darlington #stourport
in the near future.
Although it isn't back at Birmingham Town Hall anytime soon, I wanted to just highlight how great #birminghamtownhall
were as a venue. Incredibly child friendly with such lovely staff. We had someone help us up the lift with our pram, then another member of staff took our pram off us and kept it secure, giving it us back very quickly, when we left the show. The toilets were located well for kids and overall the whole place was great. We will definitely be going back with the girls to watch more productions there. .
Thank you @caterpillarshow
for a great afternoon. .
