TELETUBBIES SONGTIME FUN COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN AT VUE
DHX Brands and Vue Entertainment (UK) present an hour-long musical feast for Teletubbies fans at Vue venues nationwide from June 7
Halifax, NS – 25 April 19 – DHX Brands, the dedicated brand management and consumer products arm of DHX Media, is delighted to announce that they have teamed up with Vue Entertainment (UK) for a special singalong extravaganza for Teletubbies fans from June 7, titled “Teletubbies Songtime at the Cinema”, with tickets now on sale.
The 60-minute show brings five favourite episodes of the hit CBeebies series to the big screen for the first time, in an hour of Teletubbies song-time family fun at Vue’s 90 venues around the UK and Ireland. Fans can watch music- and dance-themed Teletubbies episodes “Tickly”, “Big Dance”, “Music”, “Conga” and “Party!”, and singalong with iconic characters Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po to their favourite nursery rhymes. There’ll be words on the big screen for much-loved classic songs “Old MacDonald”, “If You’re Happy and You Know It” and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” with a Teletubbies twist, plus the Teletubbies’ very own original tune, “Big Hugs!”.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Teletubbies fans to sing and dance in the aisles while enjoying an hour of fantastic family fun to kick off the summer,” said Laura Brennan, Brand Manager, DHX Brands. “Vue’s big screens provide the perfect setting for a loud, lively and larger-than-life Teletubbies experience!”
“We’re delighted to be bringing the Teletubbies to our venues this spring,” added Johnny Carr, Event Cinema Manager, Vue Entertainment. “This one-hour show is the perfect introduction to the magic of the big-screen experience for pre-school children and we look forward to welcoming families to enjoy it.”
A true global phenomenon, Teletubbies changed the face of children’s TV when it originally aired in the 1990s, and its 2015 refresh for 21st century preschoolers is proving equally popular. Teletubbies is available in over 200 territories across linear and VOD TV and attracts approximately 100 million views per month on its global YouTube channels.
Tickets for “Teletubbies Songtime at the Cinema”, exclusive to Vue, are on sale now at myvue.com.
