FOLLOWING an exciting 2018 in which Sooty celebrated his 70th birthday, the nation’s favourite yellow magic bear is pleased to announce that he’ll be joined by Sweep, Soo and his TV pal Richard Cadell, for a brand-new spring 2019 theatre tour of new live show ‘Sooty’s Magic Show’, from February 9 – June 2 2019, including dates in South Shields and Middlesbrough.

Sooty was very busy in 2018 – celebrations for his 70th birthday last year saw him put out a brand-new series of The Sooty Show on ITVBe, put on a huge birthday celebration on Blackpool Pier in July and then performing with Sweep for Prince Charles..

Sooty’s Magic Show aims to amaze the audience with seemingly impossible tricks, from Sooty’s flying car, to Soo’s singing unicorn and Sweep’s levitating sausage.

The performance includes special guests, circus star Michael Jordan and the ultraviolet specialities of Fantasie de la Nuit.

Sooty celebrated 70 years of entertaining children in July by heading back to Blackpool North Pier, where Sooty was discovered, to host a free birthday party and celebrate in style. Sooty’s Blackpool bash included lots of fun and games for families and a special live performance of The Sooty Show, with all proceeds from the performance going to the local hospice Donna’s Dreamhouse, NHS Teaching Hospital Blackpool and Sooty’s long-standing charity partner, The Royal National Institute of Blind People. In addition to this, a 50-foot-high projection of Sooty was projected onto Blackpool Tower.

Sooty will be appearing at South Shields, Customs House on Sunday, April 7 and Middlesbrough Theatre on Saturday, April 13 2019. Contact venues for tickets.
