So...there is a screening of a ballet at the local cinemas, it's a live film of an Australian Ballet company doing sleeping Beauty...that looks awesome, it says it will be loved by children, my dd is 5 and loves watching ballet films etc, she could easily sit through it and enjoy, but it starts at 6pm and lasts 2hrs 20... Plus interval. She is usually asleep by 730. Would I be a neglectful mum to take her to it?

No, I'd take her, lovely opportunity, enjoy! (and I'm a teacher!)

It's not something you'll be doing everything week. For a one-off I'd say why not.

Sounds amazing! My dd is 3 and would love that!

Take her, these opportunities have to be take (I'm a teacher too!)

For me it would depend on what she is like when she is tired. Would she last that late? X

Ah thank you! I really really want to take her as it looks so beautiful from the show reels posted. And as you say it's a one off and a lovely opportunity! IM excited!! X

I took my son to the cinema late to see finding dory when he had school. Least yours is educational -ish

Ooops mn error with the kiss. I am whatsapping my family too. That's my excuse .

She's pretty great when she is tired, she gets cuddly and a bit giddy, but I guess for one day it will be ok! X

Thank you all..especially you Donald for the "X"! ;-) xx

One of my favourite memories as a little gurl was going to see the ballet, I was transfixed. It's a one off, go and enjoy.

I took my DD (then nearly 10) to the theatre on a weeknight last year to see the touring production of Annie, we didn't get back till nearly 11.30 but it was so worth it. One late night really won't hurt.
