Okay, for some reason I've been having problems with uploading photos so had to put them on my Ofoto site. If anyone wants a preview then CAT me and I'll forward them to you! Sorry I tried to do a link but it just isn't working!

The concert is fantastic fun, even for adults and Captain Feathersword is the real Feathersword and is in most of the show. I know that will please a lot of you!

Murray and Jeff went into the audience (we were on the balcony and Murray ran up - God he looks tired!) Tip is to take a rose for Dorothy as they go into the audience to collect them at one point! Also get your merchandise quickly as we were getting black looks from some as everything we were buying seemed to be the last of...!

Can't wait until they return! They better not be splitting.

YEAH !!!!!!! I Can't wait -

"Captain Feathersword fell asleep on his pirate ship, then he woke up on a farm - Oh my Goodness Me !"

What is there to buy ??

Long sleeve t-shirts in the four colours.
Captain Feathersword hat and feather sword.
Dorothy and Wags tails.
CDs and DVDs. (The DVDs are cheaper in Tesco btw!)
Mugs with the Wiggles motif.
An activity pack which I thought was over-priced at £6 but bought 2 for dst's Christmas and there are four activity books (colouring in etc.) plus pencils so not too bad.
Backpacks - they had run out of these first so buy quickly, we missed out.
Tour book thing.
Other stuff I didn't see because they had sold out!

By the way this isn't a list of what we bought! We got t-shirts (£10 each), activity books and a cd (£6). We ticked people off because we got the last books and cd and yellow t-shirt in that size. I could feel the evil looks burning into my back! We are going online later on in the year to buy other Christmas pressies as it is good quality stuff, maybe the shops here will catch up.

You'll have an absolute blast!

So either no one wants to spoil the anticipation or no one is interested but regardless I continue. I've put a few on my main photo page but only the amount I am allowed per day!

For a sneaky peek.

And the wiggles are .....?

TwoIfBySea Sun 03-Jul-05 22:53:03

Fran!!!! Australian kiddie entertainment, think Hi-5 with better songs and less squeaky voices!

Oh just found out the Wiggles stuff will be in the shops (Argos so far) from "the autumn." I take it that means September...

Got this whole thread to me

I saw Captain Feathersword...

You are right, he is fit!

Do you think it would be good for dd who is 20 months? have offer of tickets and she loves them so would love take her

TwoIfBySea Sun 03-Jul-05 23:45:45

Well there were children younger than that who were having a whale of a time so go for it Froggy! I think the youngest one I saw was just over 1 year old, a little boy sitting in front of me, and he almost had apoplexy he got so excited! Lots of singing, dancing and clapping along to music.

It lasts about 1h30 so long enough not to completely tire the little ones out.

Fran, haha you mean to say you have bypassed the whole Australian invasion?

wheresmyfroggy Sun 03-Jul-05 23:52:27

I really feel like i'm missing something here

Whizzz Mon 04-Jul-05 18:05:37

Wow ! Really excited now !

Not many stage props though - I recognise the orange sheet from the Trafford centre appearance !

Popsycal - didn't you go today?

maretta Mon 04-Jul-05 19:12:55

Can anyone tell me which songs they did.

I hope it's the older ones.

We're going on Wednesday in Manchester

can't wait - we'll get to meet them before the show. Roll on Wednesday

TwoIfBySea Mon 04-Jul-05 22:40:51

Froggy they do Rock-A-Bye! And most of the songs are older and some I hadn't heard of. Captain Feathersword does this whole section on his own. They do get everyone to stand up and join in toward the end but during the whole show it is very audience involved. I've added extra pictures today.

Whizz, the stage in that theatre is really, really small which might be why there were no real props. Certainly when they did "Big Red Car" they just stood where they usually sit and shuffled around the stage.
