CALLING all Bingsters! Children's favourite TV characters, Bing and his friends are on tour with their first stage show which includes a date at Lighthouse, Poole next month.

The CBeebies stars are brought to life in the production described as, "full of fun, laughter, music and magical puppetry and the perfect first theatre trip for pre-schoolers and their families".

The series has won an International Emmy Award in the Kids’ Pre-School category in 2016, a Writer’s Guild Award and a BAFTA nomination for Best Pre-School Series.

Andrew Collier, creative director of Minor Entertainment, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Bing to the stage - we know families throughout the UK love Bing as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see children’s faces light up when they meet him at the theatre for the first time."

Mikael Shields, CEO of Acamar Films and producer of Bing said: “Seeing Bing take a leap from the screen to the stage is hugely exciting for all of us at Acamar. We are thrilled to be working with Minor Entertainment to bring the Bing Live shows to our young audience.

"Introducing Bing fans to possibly their first experience of theatre is a tremendous creative challenge and Minor has shown imaginative flair, exceptional attention to detail, and their passion for bringing preschool characters to life has been evident throughout our collaboration with them.”

Bing Goes to the Theatre is at Lighthouse from Saturday, July 28 to Sunday, July 29.
