We went to see Justin & Friends: Mr Tumble’s Circus!!

Becky is 12 and Ellie is 7.....Becky stopped choosing to watch CBeebies a good few years ago but Ellie will still watch it now and again mostly for Topsy and Tim and anything with Justin Fletcher in.....I just know sometime over the next year or so CBeebies will be ignored and Ellie will decide she is too old to watch it just like Becky did....

So when I had the chance to take my girls to see CBeebies Live show Justin & Friends: Mr Tumble’s Circus I jumped at the chance.....I wanted them to enjoy it once before they were both too old...


Last Monday Mr Tumble’s Circus came to town......Well he came to our town to the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena....Ellie was beyond excited and Becky pretended she wasn't but she was....hehehe

We got there with minutes to spare....Phew! Took our seats and waited for the show to start.....


The show was all about Justin and his friends being excited that Mr Tumble’s Circus was coming to town but it was delayed....They soon realised that they too had lots of circus skills so would be able to put on their own show....Hooray! Justin with the help of Andy Day, Robert the Robot, Cat Sandion and Gem from Swashbuckle they put on a fantastic show.....

The show was a mix of all Justin Fletchers shows....Justin’s House, Mr Tumble, Gigglebiz! It was filled with lots of catchy songs, simple dance routines for everyone to join in with and plenty of jokes for grown ups too....hehehe


The main screen was cleverly used to incorporate the other characters Justin plays such as Grandad Tumble and Lord Tumble. Our favourite characters all appeared in person..... Aunt Polly, Keith Fitt and of course Mr Tumble....You could feel the excitement when he entered the arena....

Justin Fletcher did so well.....He must have been knackered with all the costume changes and each time he appeared as a different character he came in a different entrance to the arena.....He can't have had much of a break in-between the earlier show and ours as we saw lots people on their way home when we were going to the arena....Very well done to him and the other performers.....

There were so many great bits....The dancing dinosaur, Keith Fit singing Whey aye of the Tiger....Perfect for it being in Newcastle. That got a lot of laughs....People being sprayed with water, seeing little one's running about having the time of their life and my girls faces.... 

I laughed, danced a little and may have sung out loud a bit too loudly to the last song....The S Club 7 one Reach....hehehe Becky was not at all amused....lol Ellie was jiggling in her seat and singing along all through the show.....She laughed and giggled so much and had a fantastic time....Becky tried to act cool but she laughed just as much....


It was a fantastic show for people of all ages....Next year can I borrow a small child to take along please as my two will probably both be too cool for Mr Tumble....hehehe

We were gifted tickets to the Justin & Friends: Mr Tumble’s Circus show in exchange for promoting it. In no way did the free tickets influence our opinion!

  3. Aw! We went to the one in Manchester. It was great fun! Justin Fletcher is so talented and you're right, he couldn't have had 5 minutes to spare given all the costume changed and entrances he did. Great fun though x
