Kids TV sensation Bluey will be bringing her whole family to North Wales next summer. Following sell-out theatre shows across Australia and the US, Bluey’s Big Play will come the UK and take centre stage at Venue Cymru, Llandudno in May 2024.
Audiences of all ages will get to see Bluey and her younger sister Bingo alongside parents Bandit and Chilli, as they’ve never seen them before. Bluey and her family are embarking on their first live theatre show, featuring puppets, live actors, and sets, and they will be in Llandudno between May 2 and May 6.
In an original story by Bluey creator Joe Brumm, dad feels like a little bit of Sunday afternoon time out but Bluey and Bingo have other plans. They pull out all of the games and cleverness at their disposal to get dad off his bean bag.
