This autumn, the LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort is making pre-school fun even more awesome with a ticket offer for weekday visits between 4 September and 1 November 2018*. With a DUPLO® DAYS Ticket, guests can get entry for an adult and a child under the age of five, for just £25. For an additional £5 per child, up to three friends (under the age of five years) can join the fun too. PLUS children under three years old get free entry.
With the big kids back at school, the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is a pre-schoolers paradise. Little ones can board the DUPLO Train, fly a helicopter or join the DUPLO Theatre Puppets for story time with Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and the Elf and the Shoemaker on throughout the day. Little builders will love exploring the underwater world on Atlantis Submarine Voyage or taking a gentle boat ride around Fairy Tale Brook to see their fairy tale favourites - from Sleeping Beauty to Goldilocks and the Three Bears - brought to life in LEGO® bricks. For mild autumn days, there’s Splash Safari – with giant DUPLO animals and water fountains – the perfect place to splash and play.
Plus, on 18-19, 30-31 October and 1 November, guests visiting with a DUPLO DAYS Ticket can join in the fun at Brick or Treat for a spook-tacular day out.

Calling all Bingsters! Bing and his friends are going on tour in the first ever Bing stage show, Bing Live!which will be visiting Guildford’s G Live on Saturday 31 August and Friday 1 September as part of a major UK tour.
Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories by pretending, dressing-up and singing songs. Flop and Amma are there to help, but in this magical world of make-believe things don’t always go according to plan…
The CBeebies favourites are brought to life in a brand new stage production full of fun, laughter, music and magical puppetry. Bing Live!is the perfect first theatre trip for pre-schoolers and their families.
Going to the theatre… it’s a Bing thing!
Bing Live!is produced by Minor Entertainment (In the Night Garden Live) and directed by Will Tuckett, guest principal character artist of the Royal Ballet, whose production of Wind in the Willowswon an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2014.
The show will also bring together a first-class creative team to ensure a quality family entertainment stage show for audiences of all ages. Bing is adapted for the stage by Helen Eastman with costumes and puppet design by Tahra Zafar. As Head of Costume, Hair and Make-up for the Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies staged in London, 2012, Tahra managed the production of 23,000 costumes for all four Ceremonies. Her film projects include: Star Wars VII The Force Awakens, X Men-First Class,Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone andThe Fifth Elementand for television:In the Night Garden, Zingzillas and The Adventures of Abney and Teal.
Since its launch on CBeebies, Bing has been a huge ratings hit and it’s the number one top rated pre-school show on BBC iPlayer. Celebrating the joyful, messy, reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments that little ones and the grown-ups in their lives will recognise…whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy.
The series has won an International Emmy Award in the Kids’ Pre-School category in 2016, a Writer’s Guild Award and a BAFTA nomination for Best Pre-School Series. The animated series, which saw Mark Rylance make his children’s television debut voicing Flop, is produced by Acamar Films.
Andrew Collier, Creative Director of Minor Entertainment, said “We’re thrilled to be bringing Bing to the stage - we know families throughout the UK love Bingas much as we do, and we can’t wait to see children’s faces light up when they meet him at the theatre for the first time.
Mikael Shields, CEO of Acamar Films and producer of Bing said:“Seeing Bing take a leap from the screen to the stage is hugely exciting for all of us at Acamar. We are thrilled to be working with Minor Entertainment to bring the 'Bing Live' shows to our young audience. Introducing Bing fans to possibly their first experience of theatre is a tremendous creative challenge and Minor has shown imaginative flair, exceptional attention to detail, and their passion for bringing preschool characters to life has been evident throughout our collaboration with them. We can’t wait to watch the reaction from Bingsters to seeing Bing and Flop on stage next year.”
