TWIRLYWOOS are coming to Ellesmere Port next year.

Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo will set sail around the UK in a brand-new theatrical adventure, playing at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall on April 8, 2019.

All the favourite characters from the beloved CBeebies TV show will be live on stage for the first time.

Expect mischief, music and plenty of surprises as the Twirlywoos embark on a new adventure onboard their Big Red Boat.

With inventive puppetry, Twirlywoos Live! aims to be a laugh-out-loud treat for little ones.

It is written by Zoe Bourn, who has brought to life some of the world’s best-loved children’s titles including Thomas and Friends and Fireman Sam Live!

Twirlywoos was first broadcast on CBeebies in 2015, and in 2017 celebrated its 100th episode. It is co-created by Anne Wood, who has devised shows including Teletubbies, and Steve Roberts, who with Anne co-created the Bafta-winning CBeebies series Dipdap.

Twirlywoos Live! is brought to the stage by MEI Theatrical, whose recent productions include Sarah and Duck Live on Stage (Polka Theatre and UK Tour) and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show (West End).

The show is recommended for ages one and above, with babes in arms welcome. The running time is 55 minutes with no interval and takes place at 2pm.

Tickets are priced £13 for adults and £11 for concessions, with youngsters under two going free if they don't need a seat. Booking fees apply. To buy tickets, visit
