Now I have a handy tip for all those parents looking to do something a little different with their children this year rather than the usual panto shows,how about trying a puppet show? The Little Angel Threatre is in it's 40th year and is in Islington London and specialises in great puppet shows which I find that my daughter absolutly loves and would choose to go to given the choice of going anywhere she wants.

Not only do the kids love them and get to interact with the show but you will also enjoy it as well and be able to play a part in the enjoyment of the occasion. The Little Angel Threatre is currently running shows such as - The Sleeping Beauty. A traditional story that I am sure we have all heard and is hilariously brought back by The Little Angel as this christmas's special. The music is fantastic and the manipulation of the puppets is simply spell binding both for adults and children alike suited best for ages 5 to 100. This show is there main one and runs on sat and sun right up to and over the new year twice on each day and is great value at £7.50 for adults and £6.50 for children. Cindermouse. Cindermouse is a brilliantly moving story same as the traditional story of cinderella but played out by really cute little mice and the puppets in this show are amazing and costumes are fantastic,the acrobatic and dancing scenes are breathtaking. Suitable 3+ Go Noah The great flood is coming and Noah is in a rush to prepare the ark and get all the animals aboard,a truely fasinating tale adapted in a caribian style with great effect ideal for teaching the little tots all about the story of the ark and the lighti
ng is fantastic. suitable 4+ The Selkie Bride Selkies are well known sea creatures based in stories from the shores of Scotland and Ireland,they are able to leave their skins and become human and if a man is to hold and capture a skin then the selkie is forced to live with him forever a truely romantic story and beautiful old celtic myth. Suitable 4+ These three shows are only shown a limited number of times these can be checked out on www.littleangeltheatre.com or alternatively on0207 226 1787. If you are going to take a group of ten or more including adults then you may even get a 10% discount which always helps. They also do visiting workshops for a fee and this may be of particular intrest to school teachers who are looking to do something a bit different next year. So why don't you try something a little traditional this year they are sure to love it and who knows you may as well I know I did.
