This show has been selling out in theaters all over the country - so we're very lucky that Bedford is one of the stops on this outer-space-bound tour! Kid Carpet (purveyor and international pioneer of catchy-low-fi-electro pop, who has toured with Arcade Fire, no less!) describes the show like this:
"BLAST OFF! involves some very lo-fi technological wizardry, turning ordinary everyday toys into magical superstars with the aid of a video camera, lots of laughs, silliness and live music. Bring your rock-out attitude and your astronaut costume (fancy dress optional!) because were going to space.... 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1... BLAST OFF!"
And frankly it is just not a decent Friday night without a rock-out-attitude and an astronaut costume....
There are two performances: 3.30pm (commences at 3.45pm, so the after-schoolers can get there in time for launch) and 6.00pm. It's recommended for children aged four and above.
Tickets are £8, £5 concessions and available to buy online here.
Curious? Have a watch of this video by Will Bishop-Stephens to get a flavour of the magic on offer.
