July 13th/14th Mr Bloom & Friends’ Big Day Out – Our Garden Wildlife
Calling all Tiddlers! Everyone is invited to Mr Bloom & Friends’ Big Day Out as it tours the UK this summer. It’s a fantastic free day out with plenty to learn and do. Come and build dens, make music, share stories and, when you’ve learned something new, show everyone how to do it at home.
As part of the Big Day Out, Mr Bloom and his Veggies are bringing their special stage show When Julian Lost his Wiggle created for Tiddlers everywhere. If you’d like to see the stage show, you’ll need to pre book your free tickets on here. We know the stage show is going to be popular amongst his young fans, so to make it fair all names will be drawn at random in advance.

You won’t need a ticket for general admission to the event; so don’t worry if you’re not successful in the draw. All other activities are free to take part in, whether its songs and storytelling with Rastamouse and Da Easy Crew, for example, or joining familiar CBeebies faces in fabulous fun. So don’t miss out on a great free day out. Come and join us! We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Ticket Information
You can apply for entrance to one show per household and for maximum of six tickets. All children over two years of age require a ticket. You can register for tickets for the When Julian Lost his Wiggle in Middlesbrough at any time until Thursday 27 June at 4pm.
