Half Term comes alive at The Met with magical cats, naughty trolls and some very important pants

The Met’s October Half Term is an imaginative feast for children aged 3+ with five magical shows from 25 October to 1 November.


On Saturday 25 October storytelling company Stories and More present Adventures with Sam : On The Farm, co-written and starring Bury’s own Jill Regan.


Five-year-old Sam has a passion for reading and the ability to jump into books to create amazing adventures. Dive in with Sam and help to solve the mystery of the missing golden egg, meet Heidi the hen and Simon the sheep dog and use your detective skills. Adventures with Sam is suitable for ages 3-7 and performances are at 11am and 2pm.


On Tuesday 28 October Peaceful Lion Productions present Hey, Presto! Presto the cat is a very talented magician, so when he and his best friend Monty the dog join a funfair and start a magic show things look good for the duo. But fame soon goes to Monty’s head. A heart-warming tale of aspiration, friendship, adventure and a little bit of mischief, Hey Presto is the perfect treat for everyone aged 3 and up. Performances are at 11am and 1pm.


Dominic Berry returns to The Met on Wednesday 29 October at 11am with his latest show, When Trolls Try To Eat Your Goldfish.


A line of troll-prints lead out of the door, across the lawn and into the dark, deep forest… Nikki’s goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third, needs rescuing!


This high energy, comedy show is a unique mix of performance and music from the creator of popular previous shows at The Met; Spark The Goblin Wizard and The Dragon Who Hates Poetry. Suitable for ages 5+.


On Thursday 30 October at 2pm Blunderbus Theatre Company bring the very lovely Hugless Douglas to The Met. Douglas is a huggable, lovable young brown bear who wakes up one morning in need of a hug. He tries to find the perfect one, but none of them seem quite right. Douglas soon discovers that there’s only one hug that will do – a big bear hug from his mum. Children ages 3-7 are invited to join Douglas in this happy new show, full of laughter, sing along songs and plenty of opportunities to join in.


On Saturday 1 November at 1.30pm The Egg presents classic comedy for wise young children, The Queen’s Knickers. What would you do if you lost the Queen’s pants? Dilys, the Queen’s maid, is the royal custodian of her Majesty’s ‘intimate apparel’, otherwise known as the Queen’s knickers. But one day the knickers go missing, causing a national state of emergency and a diplomatic incident of catastrophic proportions.


A celebration of the garments we all wear, but never show, this children’s classic is all about knickers but it definitely won’t be pants. Based on the book by Nicholas Allen, The Queen’s Knickers is suitable for ages 3+.


Tickets are £6 each for Advenutres With Sam, £7 each for Hey, Presto!, £6 each for When Trolls Try To Eat Your Goldfish, £8 each for Hugless Douglas and £10 each for The Queen’s Knickers.
