Peppa Pig’s Adventure

Peppa Pig’s Adventure is coming to The Lowry on 15th and 16th August 2018!

Bring your little ones along to join Peppa as she gets ready to go on an exciting camping trip with George and her friends.  With lunch boxes packed and Daddy Pig driving the bus, Peppa and her friends are excited!

The happy campers settle down to sleep and listen to the gentle pitter patter of rain outside their tents, where they can look forward to lots of splashing around in muddy puddles when they wake up!

The show will be full of games, laughter and livde music plus it will also feature many other well-loved characters including Pedro Pony, Suzy Sheep and Gerald Giraffe.

The show is only on for two days, and tickets will therefore be limited, so don’t miss the opportunity to see it.

Tickets can be booked here
