A BAFTA award-winning CBeebies series is coming live to Ellesmere Port this March.

Sarah & Duck's Big Top Birthday, put on by MEI Theatrical in association with Polka Theatre, will be at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall for two performances only at 1.30pm and 4pm on March 15.

The enchanting world of CBeebies’ hit animated series Sarah & Duck features a host of wonderful characters from the TV show.

Join Sarah and Duck, along with all their favourite friends including The Ribbon Sisters, The Shallots, Flamingo and Umbrella, as they plan a circus-themed birthday party for Scarf Lady in their garden.

But when the weather turns windy and the big top is blown away, will Sarah and Duck be able to save the day?

Told through a fantastic blend of inventive puppetry, charming storytelling and toe-tapping music, and featuring all the familiar voices from the CBeebies series including Roger Allam as the narrator and Lesley Nicol as Scarf Lady, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday will take families on a magical theatrical adventure.

Following the gentle adventures of a wide-eyed, seven-year-old girl and her feathered best friend, Sarah & Duck has been a huge hit since its debut in 2013, winning a BAFTA for ‘Best Pre-School Animation’ in 2014 and regularly appearing in CBeebies' Top 10 programmes for viewers aged 4-15.

Now in its third series, it is shown in over 100 countries around the world.
