Hey Duggee live show to tour UK

Hit children’s show Hey Duggee is to tour the UK for the first time ever in a vibrant and interactive stage show.

The smash hit CBeebies series is brought to life through innovative puppetry and storytelling in Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show, which will tour across the UK from December through to summer 2023.

Visiting 24 theatres, Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show includes a four-week run at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall (London) from December 14.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday July 1 (regional theatres) and at 10am Monday July 4 (London) from www.ticketmaster.co.uk and direct from theatres.

Since bursting onto TV screens in 2014, Hey Duggee, a BBC and Studio AKA creation, has won no fewer than six BAFTAs and is an international Emmy award-winning hit. It was the most streamed children’s show on BBC iPlayer in 2021.

Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show is presented by award-winning theatre producer Kenny Wax and theatre and live entertainment promoters Cuffe and Taylor in association with Live Nation.

Kenny Wax says: “We are so thrilled to be working with Live Nation, Cuffe & Taylor, Studio AKA and BBC Studios to create a brand new stage show with lots of surprises touring the country with a sit-down month in London over Christmas. I can’t wait.”

Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring for Cuffe and Taylor, adds: “This is an incredibly exciting tour. Hey Duggee is quite simply a phenomenon and has taken the world of children’s entertainment by storm.

“We are delighted to be working with Kenny and his team at Kenny Wax Family Entertainment, as well as all the extended Hey Duggee family at Studio AKA and BBC Studios. We look forward to Duggee and his friends filling theatres around the UK.”

Wrangler named official denim sponsor of iconic music festivals

One of America’s most recognised denim labels, Wrangler, has announced a collaboration with three iconic music festivals. The sponsorship kicks off with “75 Days of Summer”, a sweepstake offering 75 days of prizes to destination music festivals Lollapalooza (Chicago and Berlin) and Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL Fest).

At each festival, Wrangler will activate onsite showcasing its brand heritage to music fans in a variety of ways. In the Wrangler booth, an interactive customer space, fans can buy exclusive denim festival merchandise and personalise it with free laser customisation specific to the festival. The brand will also offer enhanced personalisation options for select artists and VIPs behind the scenes. A complete line of Wrangler x Lollapalooza apparel, including tees and denim, will also be available on Wrangler.com.

“Fans are thrilled to be back to experiencing music and showcasing festival fashion in real life,” says Holly Wheeler, vice president global marketing for Wrangler. “At a time when Western influence continues to surge in the world of fashion, festivals are combining different genres, fan bases, lifestyles and experiences across the globe. With a record-breaking summer season, diverse lineups and trailblazing interactive options for fans, we’re thrilled to collaborate with C3 Presents and Live Nation to celebrate with music fans in ways we haven’t before.”

“Music festivals have always acted as launchpads for the latest and most creative fashion trends,” adds Stephanie Adamson, senior merchandise manager at C3 Presents. “Festivals invite a spirit of individuality, and the creative possibilities are endless at the intersection of fashion and music. Our collaboration with Wrangler is a relevant and timely expression of that.”
