A spokesman said: “Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories in the theatre by pretending, dressing-up and singing songs. Flop and Amma are there to help, but in this magical world of make-believe things don’t always go according to plan.

“The CBeebies favourites are brought to life through the use of magical puppetry in a brand-new stage production full of fun, laughter and music.

“Bing Live is the perfect first theatre trip for pre-schoolers and their families.

“Going to the theatre… it’s a Bing thing.”

The spokesman added: “Celebrating the joyful, messy, reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments that little ones and the grown-ups in their lives will recognise…whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy.”

Bing Live is produced by Minor Entertainment (In the Night Garden Live) and directed by Will Tuckett, guest principal character artist of the Royal Ballet, whose production of Wind in the Willows won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2014.
