ONE of television’s top-rated children’s shows, and a BAFTA Award winner, returns to Lowestoft’s Marina Theatre today following a hugely successful West End run. Peppa Pig’s own live stage show – Peppa Pig’s Party – plays at the Marina at 4pm and tomorrow at 10am and 1pm.

Peppa Pig is one of those rare children’s characters who has timeless appeal, and is adored by the young and their parents alike. Peppa is a playful little pig who lives with her little brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Through everyday adventures she plays games, makes new friends and enjoys her absolutely favourite activity – jumping up and down in muddy puddles!

Peppa Pig’s Party tells the story of Peppa’s birthday, in a charming, original and imaginative show full of brand new songs, muddy puddles, and oinks! It’s a chance for all her young friends across the East to join in the fun with Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Emily Elephant. Just a few seats remain available from the box office.

On Thursday (7.30pm) the Marina hosts music and comedy star Joe Longthorne in concert. A household name in Britain for more than 30 years, Joe continues to be in constant demand both as a television and live performer.

He first came to British public attention in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television’s Search For A Star, which led to appearances at The London Palladium with Bob Hope, a slot on The Royal Variety Performance and appearances on The Talk Of The Town programme.

In 1987, he starred in the popular BBC series The Les Dennis Laughter Show, and went on to be given his own television series, The Joe Longthorne Show, on ITV for three consecutive seasons.

At The Marina, Joe will perform with his musical director on piano in an intimate evening of songs, laughter and stories.
