My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

WIN A Family Ticket* for Peppa Pig's Treasure Hunt Live in London!!

Peppa Pig comes to London!!

Peppa's first stage tour, Peppa Pig’s Party, was one of the top-selling children’s theatre shows in  2010 and 2011. Now hot on its heels comes a second stage production, Peppa Pig's Treasure Hunt that sets out on the road from 13 October this autumn with tour dates through until July  2012.

Peppa Pig’s first tour set the bar high for children’s theatre shows. With over 
650 performances from its opening in Exeter in September 2009 to its final 
show in Southsea on 3 July 2011, Peppa Pig’s Party visited 90 venues across 
the UK and Ireland!  Peppa and her friends were watched by approximately 
400,000 people! The Criterion Christmas run 2010 – 2011 gave the theatre the biggest 
advance in its box office history!

About the Artists that make the magic happen!

The creative talents from the first show are reunited for Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt:   
•  Director Richard Lewis (who has also adapted Peppa Pig for stage) has many acclaimed 
children’s stage shows to his credit, including Fimbles and the two LazyTown Live! tours 
(2007/08 and 2009).  
•  Nigel Plaskitt is Puppetry Consultant for the show and is, arguably, the UK’s most 
experienced puppet specialist. His many credits include creating several characters and 
writing for the pre-school children’s programme Pipkins (1973 – 1981); for 13 years one 
of the principal performers on Spitting Image; and puppetry consultant for the recent
West End/touring hit show Avenue Q and the current West End hit Betty Blue Eyes. 
•  The music comes from LazyTown’s highly talented composer Mani Svavarsson whose 
songs are well known to children and parents.  
Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt is produced by the team (Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions) 
behind the recent tours of LazyTown Live!, Roald Dahl’s The BFG and the first Peppa Pig tour, 
Peppa Pig’s Party.

  15. CP Brien on Facebook: Peppa Pig was my sons 1st favourite programme. He was very young and only had a few words (mama, dada, etc) but when Peppa would come on he'd point to the television, make the loudest snorting noise and start clapping his hands. It was so funny, it had my husband and I in stitches. I'm so glad we managed to get him on video doing it as they're the little gems I never want to forget.

    We took our kids to Peppa Pig World in May, and it was AWESOME. We have 3 kids, aged 8,5 and 2, and there was something for all of them. The smile on he youngest face was brilliant, and even now she talks about her ride in miss rabbits helicopter and grandad dogs train. I really cant recommend the place enough. Plus under 1meter is free entry, yet they can go on almost all the rides. x halfpinthero@gmail.com

She now has the road track and is collecting the buildings and vehicles not to mention she shares her bed with all the characters from the cartoon and she would love to go and see this so fingers crossed for her.
