MARY Poppins first landed on the stage 11 years ago but now she is back and will be making a stop at Bristol’s Hippodrome.

The magical story follows one of the world’s favourite nannies as she cares for the children of the wealthy and uptight Banks family.

She embarks on a series of adventures with the children, Jane and Michael, as they try to pass on some of her friendly attitude to their preoccupied parents.

The stage production of Mary Poppins is co-created by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh and has a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes.

It includes some of the story’s timeless songs such as Jolly Holiday, Step In Time and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Mary Poppins will be at the Hippodrome theatre from October 29 until November 28.

There will be performances every Tuesday to Saturday from 7.30pm as well as matinees every Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm.

Sunday performances will take place on November 1 at 2pm and 7pm and November 8, 15 and 22 at 2pm.

Tickets, priced £22.50-62.50, are available from the box office on 08448 713012 or via
