The 2019 tour will also see a world first, as the 2.5-metre long Pinky Ponk Air Orb soars over the heads of audiences up and down the country.

Oliver Seadon, executive producer, said: “When we made In the Night Garden Live we never imagined it would run for 10 years and that over a million visitors would come to see it.

“It's incredibly exciting now to be making a brand-new show and taking it into theatres all over the country. This will be the first time that audiences get to see In the Night Garden Live in their local theatre.”
