The UK’s favourite yellow bear will be performing in Weston next month.

Joined by his puppet pals Sweep and Soo, Sooty and Richard Cadell will be at The Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, on April 11.

The magic show is jam-packed with impossible tricks, Sooty’s flying car, Soo’s singing unicorn and Sweep’s levitating sausage.

They will also be joined by special guests circus star Michael Jordan and Fantasie de la Nuit.

Last year was an especially busy one for Sooty and Richard. Having been on tour in the early part of the year, the latter half of 2019, the pair made a number of television appearances, including Strictly Come Dancing, where they read out the voting terms and conditions as part of the much-celebrated Blackpool week, a record-breaking appearance on a celebrity version of Bargain Hunt for Children in Need, and a cheeky feature on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.

Sooty has been entertaining children for more than 70 years. His first television appearance was in 1968 on ITV.

In an exciting year of birthday-celebration activity, Sooty returned to Blackpool North Pier, where he was discovered by Harry Corbett, to host a free birthday party and celebrate in style.
