Sooty will be joined by canine chum Sweep, panda pal Soo and host Richard Cadell for The Sooty Show Live at The Platform in Morecambe on Saturday March 28.

Richard said: “Making the TV show is great fun, but you can’t beat the reaction you get from a live audience.

“Working on stage, there’s a chance for some interaction and for the whole family to get involved, and I think it’s important to make sure the adults enjoy the show as much as the children do.

“You get so much more of a buzz performing in front of a live audience – it’s quite exhilarating, really.

“The show is everything you’d expect from a Sooty Show – magic, music, mayhem!

The Sooty Show is the longest running children’s programme in the world.

Richard’s delighted to be on the road and helping to continue the Sooty legacy.

He added: “I think I’m quite in awe about the whole thing and, obviously, I’m hugely proud to be the man who looks after Sooty.

“Everyone who works on the show is passionate and enthusiastic and totally devoted to preserving this little bear’s legacy. I’m sure Sooty will go on to entertain children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren for many more years to come.”

There will be two shows on the day, at 1am and 2.30pm.

Show times tomorrow are 11am and 2.30pm. Tickets are £14, £14 concs and £42 for a family ticket.
