Halifax, NS – 5 February 2018 – DHX Brands, the dedicated brand management and consumer products arm of DHX Media (TSX: DHX.A, DHX.B; NASDAQ: DHXM), announced today that  the Teletubbies are back at Butlin’s for 2018 – and for the first time in a live show, they will be joined by the Tiddlytubbies!

The brand new show, Teletubbies’ Big Play Date, features new music as part of a 20-minute live performance that calls for children to join in with a variety of fun games, from tickling, to dress up, to catch.

It is also the first live show to feature the Tiddlytubbies, who will be joining the Teletubbies for part of their Play Date. The Tiddlytubbies are eight adorable and smaller Teletubbies who regularly feature in the new television series. They live in their own special part of the Home Dome – and each of the eight has their own individual colour and character.

Butlin’s Managing Director, Dermot King, said: “The Teletubbies proved hugely popular in 2017, not only with our younger guests but also with their parents – no doubt most of whom have very happy memories of them from their own childhood. We are delighted to welcome them back again for 2018, with a new show that will once again be fun and entertaining for the whole family.”

Danielle Tanton, Global Live Events and Attractions Manager for DHX Brands (which produces the show), said: “Following a year of Big Parties with the Teletubbies, we are delighted to introduce a brand new 20-minute show for 2018 which invites children to join the Teletubbies on their Big Play Date. Following the themes of the new TV series, the show is filled with friendship, songs, games, dancing, big hugs and laughter and will have children jumping from the start with their Teletubby friends.”

Tickets to Teletubbies’/ Big Play Date are included in the price of every family break at Butlin’s three seaside resorts (Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness) and can be seen in the Skyline Pavilion.
