After a year of keeping the kids entertained at home, we're looking forward to freedom and some good old family fun! Here are five of the best fantastic treats we've got in store for children (and adults) of all ages at the Opera House.

Twirlywoos Live!

17th - 19th June 2021

We’re one of the ports of call for the fun-loving Twirlywoos, as they jump into their big red boat and set sail on a theatrical adventure across the UK.

Fans of the show’s stars - Great BigHoo, Toodloo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo – will be delighted to see the cheeky characters live on the Opera House stage. Mischievous as ever, the curious crew will be sure to find new and exciting things to share with friends who come to see their show.

This charming performance comes from the producers of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show and Sarah and Duck Live on Stage, and features beautifully inventive puppetry.

After a year of lockdown, what better way to spend the afternoon than exploring with the lovable Twirlywoos.

In The Night Garden Live

3rd - 4th July 2021

Make way for Igglepiggle’s Busy Day, as the energetic, well-loved Teddy looks for his friends in the Night Garden, following their funny sounds until he finds them all.

Igglepiggle Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and chums will appear on the Opera House stage in colourful, life-size costumes, amidst magical puppets and music.

Little ones will be enchanted by their antics – and amazed by a very special visit from the amazing flying Pinky Ponk.

Now in its 12th year, In The Night Garden Live lasts just under an hour and is a true family favourite.

Altogether now…Pip-pip, onk-onk!

Have you ever wanted to walk with a Triceratops, roar with T-Rex, scream with a Spinosaurus and run with a Raptor? Well now’s your chance!

Jurassic Earth is an interactive experience with life-like dinosaurs, prehistoric props, offering the opportunity to have your picture taken with the most magnificent beasts to ever roam our planet.

The show’s Rangers bring the Jurassic era to life, introducing a prehistoric line-up, including Zeus, Europe’s largest walking T-Rex; the wild Raptor and Spinosaurus; the gentle giant, Tank the Triceratops; and some very cute baby dinosaurs.

Soon to appear right before your very eyes in Blackpool are dinosaurs from millions of years ago, elephants from Africa, saltwater crocodiles from Australia and incredible Orangutans from Indonesia!
