Two popular children's TV characters will be coming to Lowestoft later this month and are hoping to be big hit with audiences – despite their size.

Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom will be appearing at the Marina Theatre on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27.

It will be the first time that the award-winning television series has been staged live.

For those not in the know, the kingdom of the tiny is home to the magical Princess Holly and her best friend Ben Elf who flies on the back of Gaston the ladybird.

In their new musical adventure, Ben and Holly enjoy some fun and games helping Gaston clean up his messy cave; go on a trip to The Big World with the tooth fairy Nanny Plum and plan a special surprise for King Elf's birthday party – complete with an unplanned jelly flood.
