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.

In The Night Garden Live 2014 - WIN a Family Ticket!

Rewind 32 months to September, 2011. The Man, Munchkin and I travelled to London for Munch's 2nd birthday treat - a trip to see In The Night Garden Live. 

She was so excited, and we all had a truly wonderful day! Munchkin sang and danced her way through the show, jumping to catch floating bubbles and giggling as projections of the Ninky Nonk raced around the custom built In The Night Garden Dome. A detailed review of our day can be found HERE

Then, just 9 months later, we returned to the magical Show Dome to watch it all over again. Munchkin danced as enthusiastically as she had the first time, sang as loudly as she had the first time, and definitely giggled as hard as she had the first time! 

If you read either or both of our previous reviews of the fantastic In The Night Garden Live, you may understand why we are so excited at the thought of its return for 2014!

Munchkin is now 4 years old - nearly 5. She is therefore a little older than the age group that Andrew Davenport (Producer and Author of the famous ITNG series) is targeting. However, she will still settle down with her little sister each evening after dinner for their daily trip through the CBeebies Bedtime Hour into the Night Garden. She will still dance around the lounge to the singing of Upsy Daisy, she will still bounce around the furniture pretending to be a Tombliboo, and she will line up all of her cuddly toys when she feels they need their faces washed, taking on the cleaning duties of Makka Pakka! 

As a result, we now have Beastie Boo who is a HUGE fan of In The Night Garden! She squeals with delight whenever it appears on the TV, rushing to gather all of the ITNG toys that she can find in her toy box, before settling down with them to watch the adventures her favourite characters take her on!

IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE is an amazing musical theatre experience for 
all the family. Children’s favourite CBeebies’ stars - Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, 
Makka Pakka and friends - are all brought beautifully to life on stage using 
full-size costumes, magical puppets, enchanting music and breath-taking 

IN THE NIGHT GARDEN LIVE takes place in its own all-weather, purpose-
built inflatable showdome with many family-friendly facilities. This site-specific structure is a huge hit with children and parents and its immersive theatrical experience makes audiences feel they are actually entering the magical world of the TV show In the Night Garden. 

Andrew Collier, Creative Director of Minor Entertainment said: 

“Parents tell us 
that children as young as a few months old engage with the live show, and the looks on the faces of the children and parents in the audiences are absolutely amazing. It's a huge responsibility and enormous privilege to give so many children their first experience of live theatre.”

It's no wonder we are so excited about returning to the show next month, this time as a little early celebration for Beastie Boo's 2nd birthday - nearly 3 years after our very first visit!
