Win tickets to see Noddy at the Artscape!

I think a love of live performance in the way of theatre, ballet, orchestra, puppet shows or amateur school plays is such a lovely interest to instill in kids from a young age and vividly recall going to see the ballet with my granny at the old Nico Malan (now Artscape) as well as various shows for kids on our holidays down to Cape Town – these special outings were always accompanied by such excitement and I have continued that tradition with my own kids that we always have a visit to the theatre during each school holiday….

As I mentioned in my recent article listing Top 10 things to do in the winter school holidays with your kidsThe Artscape Theatre in Cape Town is putting on Make way for Noddy during the upcoming school holidays and I am pleased to have 4 tickets to give away to the show on Monday 25 June at 10.30am!


Noddy has a bad cold and he needs some medicine to help him get better. The naughty goblins, Sly and Gobbo, convince Noddy that the medicine will have awful side effects. Dinah Doll chases Noddy all over Toyland to persuade him that medicine really can help!

Remember to arrive early so that you can have your face painted with a flower, star or butterfly.

MAKE WAY FOR NODDY runs in the ARTSCAPE THEATRE FOYER from 23 June – 7 July daily at 10:30. Should you not win this time you can purchase tickets at R50 per person via Computicket or Artscape Dial-a-Seat on 021 421 7695.

The competition is open to all blog readers in Cape Town and comprises of 4 tickets worth R200 for Monday 25 June at 10:30am.

  6. my earliest memory was going to watch a show at the Artscape foyer (nico malan at the time) with my mom and sister. Cant remember the show, but remember sitting on the steps, could have been Peter Rabbit. Gosh that was +- 30years back, now im taking my kids.

  7. I remember going to the theatre in the holidays with my gran – I was always so excited to go and see the “Three Little Bears”

    My daugther loves the theatre and has only been to the Baxter – I know she will love to see Noddy as it is also one of her favourite books.
