A stage version of the popular kids’ TV show Ben And Holly’s Little Kingdom comes to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal on January 19-20.

From the makers of Peppa Pig and the producers of the two hugely successful Peppa Pig theatre tours comes this first ever stage version of the BAFTA award-winning TV animation programme, Ben And Holly’s Little Kingdom.

Currently a top favourite show for pre-schoolers, this charmingly magical animation airs on Nick Jr (since April 2009) and on 5’s Milkshake (since April 2010).

The series won a BAFTA award for Best Pre-School Animation in 2009 and a British Animation Award for Best Pre-School Series in 2012.

The Little Kingdom – where everyone is very, very small – is home to Princess Holly and her best friend Ben Elf.

Holly is a young fairy princess who is still learning how to do magic properly and sometimes her spells don’t work out quite right. Ben is an Elf.

Elves don’t do magic but they are very good at making things.

Ben doesn’t have wings like Holly but he flies on the back of Gaston the Ladybird.

In this exciting new musical adventure, Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston clean up his messy cave; they go on a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum; and still have time to plan a surprise for King Elf’s birthday party, complete with an unplanned jelly flood.

Packed full of games, songs and laughter, this is an enchanting and magical visit to the Little Kingdom.

This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family.

Richard Lewis has adapted the TV programmes for the stage and also directs this production.
