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.

Did dinosaurs eat their own families? - Was every Tyrannosaur a fearsome carnivore? - Why did Allosaurus headbutt its prey to death? Come and test your knowledge against Ben Garrod (the TV scientist in 'Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur'). With the help of TV film footage and photos of his own palaeontological dinosaur digs, he will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about dinosaurs - and more. This is an interactive show where children will be given the chance to ask questions and show off their dinosaur knowledge to the audience. Ben's assistant will roam the auditorium with a microphone and take questions from as many children as possible. Using film footage from the BBC's 'Planet Dinosaur', Ben will talk about the deadliest predators that ever roamed the planet and the ones that, 65 million years ago, would have walked right where they are sitting now.
What could go wrong? Little rabbit was busy all morning making her own birthday cake, when she went outside into the garden... oh oh! ... the door to her house slammed shut and she couldn't get back in. There will need to be lots of participation from everyone to help her sort things out!
The Twits is the story of Mr and Mrs Twit, a very happy couple, but seldom happy at the same time. What really makes them happy is playing nasty tricks on each other. Mr Twit is a born twit whose beard has hundreds of bits of old breakfasts, lunches and dinners on it. Mrs Twit is no better - she has a glass eye which she likes to drop in her husband's beer saying "I told you I was watching you. I've got eyes everywhere so you'd better be careful." The best word to describe them is DISGUSTING.
