More than 400 people were dancing in the aisles when Benny the Bear brought his fantastic Abba Show for kids to Huyton.
The Honey Honey Show – billed as a pop concert, pantomime and cinema visit all in one live theatre performance – was a roaring success with families from across the region.
The show took place at Merseyside’s newest venue – The Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park in Huyton – and was enjoyed by children as young as four who turned out to sing and dance with parents and grandparents.
Afterwards young fans had the chance to meet the show’s star, Benny Bear, and have their photos taken with him.
Over the coming months the Leisure and Culture Park is playing host to a number of fantastic entertainment evenings and colourful cultural events. On Saturday, September 1 The Liverpool Malayalee Association will be holding Onam celebrations including an Indian luncheon followed by a traditional stage show of comedy and dance. And on Saturday, October 27, a spectacular Bollywood Dance Show takes place.
Later in the year there will be a spooky film event on November 3, and the venue has just secured its first Christmas panto – Aladdin – which will be staged from December 9 – 11, with tickets on sale now.
