THE nation's favourite yellow magic bear is bringing his tour to Weymouth Pavilion to perform two very special shows.

Following an exciting 2018 in which Sooty celebrated his 70th birthday, the popular character will be joined by Sweep, Soo and his TV pal Richard Cadell for Sooty's Magic Show on Sunday, March 24 at 11am and 2.30pm.

Sooty also put out a brand-new series of The Sooty Show on ITVBe, putting on a huge birthday celebration on Blackpool Pier in July and then performing with Sweep for Prince Charles (who also celebrated his 70th birthday in 2018!).

Sooty can’t wait to get back to doing what he loves the most this Spring – performing in theatres for children up and down the country.

Anyone watching the show will be astounded at Sooty’s flying car, Soo’s singing unicorn and Sweep’s levitating sausage!

With special guests, circus star Michael Jordan and the ultraviolet specialities of Fantasie de la Nuit, Sooty’s Magic Show is set to be a spectacular treat for the whole family and even includes a chance to meet Richard and Sooty after the show!

In July 2018, Sooty celebrated 70 years of entertaining children by heading back to Blackpool North Pier, where Sooty was discovered, to host a free birthday party and celebrate in style. Sooty’s Blackpool bash included lots of fun and games for families and a special live performance of The Sooty Show, with all proceeds from the performance going to the local hospice Donna’s Dreamhouse, NHS Teaching Hospital Blackpool and Sooty’s long-standing charity partner, The Royal National Institute of Blind People. In addition to this, a 50-foot-high projection of Sooty was projected onto Blackpool Tower as part of their 2018 illuminations.

If all that wasn’t enough, throughout December Sooty and Richard Cadell starred as The Jester & Sooty in Wolverhampton Grand Theatre’s 2018 Sleeping Beauty pantomime.
