One of the other treats we have done over the past week for Alison’s birthday was to step into the giant dome and be magically transported to the Night Garden. After watching last years show we knew we had to go back again.
We were not disappointed as soon as the large domes could be seen the girls got very excited and couldn’t wait for the show to begin. We had tickets to see the Ninky Nonk show which was brilliant I almost wish we could have had two sets of tickets so we could go to see the Pinky Ponk show too.
The girls absolutely loved the show but unfortunately my cameras battery was dead which I didn’t realise before we went so I cant show you the look of delight on their faces. I can tell you that they didn’t argue or moan for the whole 45 minutes that the show was on which I think is a bit of a miracle at the moment as the summer holidays seem to be taking their toll on them.
We loved the way they manage to use puppets alongside full sized characters and blend in the puppeteers so that they end up being part of the show in a non obtrusive way. The girls really enjoyed pointing out their all of the characters and their favourite character had to have been Makka Pakka who they say is very cute.
They are nearly at the end of the tour but you can still see it at Manchester and Birmingham. Full details can be found on the In The Night Garden Live website. We received a family ticket for the purpose of this review but all thoughts and words are my own.
