Holly has been desperate to go to a concert so when I saw the Pop Princesses on a sponsored ad (well done marketing department!) I grabbed us a couple of tickets to the Worcester show.
I didn’t tell Holly where we were going so she was excited we were off on another adventure, much to her disappointment we didn’t have to get on any trains today!
Swan Theatre Worcester
We’ve never been to the Swan Theatre even though we have lived in Worcester now for around 10 years.
The Swan Theatre opened in 1965 to replace the previous Theatre Royal that had closed in 1957. Not only does it have a 360 seat theatre but it also hosts a 60 seat studio theatre, a rehearsal studio with sprung floor a meeting room and a bar area.
The first 3 rows in the main theatre are accessible with the remaining seating being tiered and accessed by 2 stairways.
It is located in The Moors, next to the main Pitch Croft carpark in WR1. They serve snacks and have a fully licenced bar serving alcohol and soft drinks.
The Swan Theatre is available for Private Hire also.
The Pop Princesses Show
We were in Row E – The seats were great although to be honest I don’t think you could really get a ‘bad’ seat in here. Tickets were £17.50 each + £3.50 booking fee.
Holly grabbed some Haribo and a Fruit Shoot and I got a bottle of Coke costing a very reasonable £5.30 which surprised me a little compared to what we paid down in London to watch Frozen.
The show ran for around an hour before having a 15 minute interval and then the 2nd half was 45 minutes. I think this was just about within Hollys attention limit as she was struggling towards the end, although it was also VERY hot inside the theatre.
Half Time Snacks
Holly wanted Ice Cream during the interval but I was too hot to queue so she went off and queued (right next to where we were sat) on her own and paid on my card. The staff were chuckling away at her being so independant.
2 pots of Ice Cream cost £5.40 Holly had Vanilla and I had Strawberry. Again pretty reasonable!
They were also selling all sorts of flashing plastic wands etc but we avoided that stand thankfully.
I don’t want to spoil too much of the show but here are a couple of pics and clips – It was like a real concert with the little ones dancing along the front of the stage – it was super cute!
Would you recommend The Pop Princesses Show?
YES! The show was so good, the ‘princesses’ were so interactive with all the children getting them involved in the show.
Whether it was teaching them the moves to getting them singing along they were great at getting the crowd going.
The show is still touring the UK so get yourself booked in over on Sweeney Entertainment
