Following critical acclaim, Blackpool based Shaun the Sheep fans can rejoice as the popular cuddly Aardman Animation character is on the way to the Empire. The star of Wallace & Gromit and his very own CBBC show has recently performed at the Lowry and the Liverpool Empire and his friends return to the North West this Summer.

We follow Shaun as he decides to put on a very special show for all his friends, so get ready for some fabulous madcap mayhem as they dance and prance their way through a series of wonderful adventures under the nose of the short-sighted Farmer.

Families are invited to come and join Shaun and his friends in their very own live show. All your favourite characters from the hit BBC show will be here including Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy and the rest of the flock in this magical, fully choreographed music and dance extravaganza. The show features homages to many films and shows, including Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing and Riverdance - amongst many others.

Shaun's Big Show is at the Blackpool Opera House from 25 - 27 July.
