A FAVOURITE children's character is asking youngsters and adults alike to help him fix it when he appears at The Playhouse in Weston later this month.

Bob the Builder and his machine team will be appearing at a live show at the theatre in High Street on July 27 at 2.30pm.

In the show, the Fixham Theatre is set for a grand reopening, and Dickie Oliver needs Bob’s help to fix the stage for his new musical.

But when Spud the scarecrow decides he wants to be the star of the show, the job doesn’t exactly go to plan, leaving Bob and his crew in a race against time to get the theatre ready.

Bob’s team, featuring his business partner Wendy, Scoop the yellow digger, Lofty the blue crane, Roley the steamroller, Muck the digger, Dizzy the cement mixer, Scratch the digger and Pilchard the cat, will all be putting their can-do attitude and problem-solving skills to the test at the show.

Since being first aired in the UK in 1999, the show has been broadcast in 45 languages and more than 240 territories, winning millions of fans along the way.

Tickets, priced £14 for adults, £12-£14 for children and £46 for families, are available from the Playhouse or Winter Gardens Box Office on 01934 645544 or online at
