TV legend Sooty’s live show

Children’s TV legend Sooty is to embark on a UK tour early next year, including a date at Nottingham Arts Theatre on February 21.

Celebrating his 65th year in showbusiness Sooty, the nation’s favourite bear, will be joined by his canine chum Sweep, panda friend Soo and host Richard Cadell, for The Sooty Show Live.

Direct from their hit ITV series, Sooty and the gang star in a new stage show which will see them get caught up in a wonderful world of magic, mischief and mayhem.

Whether it’s children discovering the characters for the first time or adults enjoying the nostalgic experience with their little ones, The Sooty Show Live is for the whole family.

With all the charm that Sooty fans, young and old have come to expect, this show captivates its audience.

Sooty said: “I’m really looking forward to meeting Sooty fans old and new – and I can’t wait to squirt the Mums and Dads with my water pistol!”

The Sooty show is the longest running children’s programme in the world. Harry Corbett originally bought Sooty for his son Matthew Corbett while on holiday in 1948. Sooty first appeared onscreen in 1952.
