Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom is a pre-school children's show set in an enchanted magical kingdom with fairies, elves and insects.
Holly is a young Fairy Princess, who is still learning how to fly and her magic doesn't always go quite according to plan. Her best friend, Ben the Elf, doesn't have wings and he doesn't do magic, but he runs very fast and flies on the back of Gaston the Ladybird. They live in the Little Kingdom, a tiny land where flowers and grass rise high above them and every day is an adventure. Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston the Ladybird clean up his messy cave, they go on a trip into The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum, even plan a surprise birthday party for King Thistle, and oops, let's hope there's not another jelly flood! Join Ben and Holly, and their friends on this exciting musical adventure packed full of games, songs and laughter on an enchanting journey through the Magical Kingdom. With actors, masks and colourful costumes this beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family.
Coppelia for children.
Gangsta Granny is the story of Ben, a bored 11 year old who hates having to stay in with his old, cabbage-obsessed Granny every Friday night playing Scrabble while his parents go out ballroom dancing. But when he accidentally discovers Gran's exciting secret, Ben becomes part of the biggest, most daring crime caper ever planned! Suddenly Friday nights become the best part of his whole week!
Once upon a lime... WAIT A MINUTE. That's not right! A lizard - NO - a blizzard has blown through the storytellers' snow globe muddling up all his words and creating musical mix-ups and topsy-turvy tales. With the snow storm worsening, it seems life in the snow globe has been turned upside down! How will the story teller get his tales in order? Will they ever be the same again?
Shaking together wonky tales and jamming tunes into one hilarious adventure, join Kid Carpet this Christmas as he takes over The Lantern at Colston Hall with this signature blend of theatrical chaos perfect for ages 3 to 7 years and families.

One day whilst out for a jog, Stick Man is pounced on by a playful dog. Mistaken for an ordinary stick, he is swept far away, being used for all sorts of things: from a flag mast to a cricket bat, a snowman's arm to firewood (well almost!). As his adventure unfolds, Stick Man - lost and alone - wonders if he will ever get back to the family tree. Passing through all the seasons and culminating in a joyful Christmas celebration (with an appearance by a certain portly gentleman dressed in red and white) Stick Man will delight children and their families, no matter the time of year. Three actors and a one-man-band combine with a host of colourful characters and animals to magically re-tell Stick Man's adventures. Music is played live, with a multitude of instruments.
