Who doesn’t love Peppa Pig? Aussies have bought more than a mil­lion of her books and piles of toys, now they can meet her in the flesh

Peppa Pig is adored among young Gold Coast­ers, and to­mor­row they’ll be able to meet the star swine in per­son. The preschool en­ter­tain­ment phe­nom­e­non is not just a GC favouite, but a world­wide suc­cess story. The cute car­toon is now broad­cast in more than 180 ter­ri­to­ries across the US, UK, Europe, South­east Asia and South Amer­ica. There is even a theme park at­trac­tion called Peppa Pig World in the UK that at­tracts more than a mil­lion visi­tors each year.

Here Down Un­der, Peppa Pig is cur­rently the most­watched kids’ show on TV, seen daily by some 250,000 en­chanted young view­ers.

To­mor­row though, the kid­dies can break away from their screens and bust out of their bed­rooms to meet the famed pig­gie in per­son.

Fol­low­ing its suc­cess­ful open­ing around the coun­try last year, Peppa Pig Live! Big Splash is back with a brand new fun-filled show. Big­ger pup­pets and bril­liant new sing-a-long songs from the BAFTA award-win­ning com­poser Mani Svavars­son are just two of the exciting new ad­di­tions.

The story fol­lows Peppa’s quest to fix the leaky roof of the nurs­ery with the help of all her bud­dies. The mot­ley crew de­cide to hold a fete to raise money so Mr. Bull will come and tend to the re­pair job.

“We are thrilled that Peppa Pig fans around Aus­tralia can’t get enough of this won­der­ful live show,” pro­ducer An­ton Berezin says.

Theresa Borg, the show’s res­i­dent di­rec­tor, has re­mounted the pro­duc­tion orig­i­nally pre­sented by UK theatre com­pany Lime­light Pro­duc­tions.

“The show is so witty and Bri­tish that ev­ery­body loves it, from our small­est fans to gran­nies and grand­dads.”

An all-singing, all-danc­ing ad­ven­ture show that’s full of songs, games and muddy pud­dles – now that’s fun.
