Prepare for panda-monium when the loveable Mr Panda comes to town.

Mr Panda and his friend Rainbow BigBottom have spent many years performing their shows for children aged three to nine years old.

They teach their audiences about the giant pandas, their habitats and the problems facing pandas today.

Lorraine Brooker-Mays, aka Rainbow Big Bottom, started her career in a knife throwing act in a circus. 

She says: "Smiles and happiness are spread from young children right through to their grandparents who bring them to my shows.

"Mr Panda and I have been together for over twenty years and have appeared all over the UK.

"I have been writing children’s shows for many years. I have been blessed to work with the most wonderful kind and talented people who have been beside me on my own special adventure to bring Mr Panda to life.

"I have just finished writing my first book about Mr Panda and his adventures around the world helping children and animals."

She says children can expect lots of colour, laughter, magic, and singing and adds: "In this crazy piece of theatre the panda family are up to mischief."

With games, magic, juggling, balloon art and more this promises to be a fun show for all the family.

There is also a chance for children to meet Mr Panda after performances.
