Families and little ones will see some of their television favourites on stage when CBeebies’ Sarah & Duck bring their live show to The Dukes in Lancaster March 13.

The BAFTA-winning show is brought to life in Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday, a perfect introduction to theatre for children aged three and above.

When the titular duo decide to throw a birthday party for Scarf Lady in their garden, their friends each audition with their act for the circus-themed bash.

The production features pre-recorded dialogue from the show’s regular voice-actors, including Lesley Nicols (Downton Abbey) as Scarf Lady and narrator Roger Allam.
