It’s every child’s dream come true! A chance to meet some of their favourite CBeebies characters… in real life!

THE GINGERBREAD MAN
The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra will perform The Musical Journey of The Gingerbread Man live at Pudsey’s Spot each day at CarFest North and CarFest South. This fifteen minute set is simply a joy to behold, bringing a classic story to life in this musical retelling.
If you’ve got young babies or pre-school kids, then make sure you take time out to join Jo Jingles for a fabulous fun, interactive music, singing and movement class each day. Jo sings, dances and has a great imagination! It’s not uncommon to find him pretending to be a train driver, a monkey or even a teapot during class! Jo will be joined every day by experienced teachers to take your precious little ones on a magical musical tour!
TIDDLER AND OTHER TERRIFIC TALES
Under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, these terrific tales weave together a whole host of colourful characters from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best-loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze.
Bursting at the seams with live music, puppetry, and laughs, help monkey find his mummy, check out George the Giant’s new clothes, see how many animals the little old lady can squash and squeeze into her tiny house and follow Tiddler’s tall tales and big imagination across the ocean. From Freckle Productions, the team behind Zog, Zog and the Flying Doctors and Stick Man, Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales is the perfect hour-long adventure for all ages.

Keep your eyes peeled for some of your favourite CBeebies presenters, CBBC stars and special guests, who will be reading stories across the weekend.
Andy and the Odd Socks
Andy and the Odd Socks are one of the most popular bands for young children in the UK. Stars of the wacky comedy drama ‘Andy and the Band’ currently on CBeebies and CBBC, the Odd Socks are always there to help their fans along the way and of course save the day…in their own inimitable way. Fronted by Andy Day, one of the most popular children’s TV personalities, the Odd Socks are all about fun and laughter, but more importantly they deliver a message of individuality, acceptance and tolerance. Which is what being an Odd Sock is all about… because everyone is different and that’s good! We are delighted to have the band performing at Pudsey’s Spot at CarFest for a concert that promises to bring joy to every member of the family!
