As part of The Courtyard’s Family Saturdays, Barking Dog Theatre Company present Teddy’s Seaside Holiday.

Eddy the Teddy is getting very excited because he's going on holiday to the seaside with his best friend Sammy Ragdoll, Sammy is hoping to have a nice relaxing time but with Eddy the Teddy, an adventure is never far away.

Sammy decides that a sleep on the beach in the sun is the best way to spend the first day. But when Eddy gets bored and wanders off, everyone knows he's going to get into a fix. He meets many interesting and wonderful characters during his adventure and he needs help from them - and the children in the audience - if he is to get back to Sammy safely.

The show uses many elements of theatre, mime, puppetry and songs to join in with and is a perfect introduction to live entertainment for children who've never been to a show before.

Formed in 1987 in Barking, Essex, The Barking Dog Theatre Company produces shows specifically written and designed for children and their families. Over the last 30 years they have produced dozens of shows which they have performed to thousands of children and families in schools and theatres in England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland and Russia.

Children and their families can take part in a free, pre-show sandcastle flag-making activity from 10.30am.

Teddy’s Seaside Holiday will be at The Courtyard on Saturday, January 19 at 11am. To book, call the box office on 01432 340555 or visit
