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.

How the cat purred and how the witch grinned, as they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind... The witch and her cat are flying happily on their broomstick - until a stormy wind blows away the witch's hat, bow and wand. A helpful dog, bird and frog find the witch's lost things, and they all hop on the broom for a ride. But this broomstick's not meant for five and - CRACK - the broom snaps in two! When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch? And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone? Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up (and their grown-ups), adapted from the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.
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.
Loosely based on Lewis Carroll's poem, this show/walkabout for all ages is led by a large weepy Walrus puppet and his lugubrious chippy companion.
