In Sheffield, we’re lucky enough to have some amazing theatres. This year the Cbeebies pantomime is being filmed at the Crucible, today! Unfortunately, I didn’t know about this until yesterday, so we didn’t get tickets for the show. However, the lovely people at Cbeebies put on a fantastic Christmas festival outside.
Some of the stars of Cbeebies appeared on a little stage outside the theatre. Small shows were run at regular intervals throughout the day, so whatever time you arrived, you got to see something. Then there were tents set up in Tudor Square, with lots of different activities, also featuring some of our Cbeebies favourites.
When we first arrived, we saw Mr Maker (who was older than I expected!), who chatted to the kids gathered, and led a dance to warm us all up. The Boy was so excited!
Then we went into the tents, there was a Cbeebies Christmas story time about to start in one, but I didn’t think The Girl would appreciate having to sit still, so we gave this one a miss.
There was a Swashbucklers treasure hunt, we had to answer Christmas questions and collect stamps. The Boy then got to pick a prize out of a treasure chest, he got a small pirate set.
We also visited some activity stations. Made a crown, a Christmas tree decoration and a snow flake.
