The Very Hungry Caterpillar fangirling day!

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, we just wanted to mention: we love the Very Hungry Caterpillar! 🐛❤️ (We’ve been subtle about it, right?!)

Finally, after months of waiting, the joyous day came yesterday when we got to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar show at Middlesbrough Theatre. Two very excited Lasses we were! 😍 But before that, a little recap…

First there was the video…


Spot the Love Middlesbrough Lasses!

Then there was the behind the scenes blog post!

And now, the Love Middlesbrough Lasses finally got to see their hero in the flesh (well, fuzz)!

 
Can you believe our luck? We found a lolly which looked just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

The show itself was just magical – as engaging for adults as it was for children, and it brought the stories to life in a way which made it look like the characters really had just leapt off the page. It didn’t matter whether you knew the stories or not, they were still easy to follow and totally enchanting.

Of course, the highlight of the show was the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and from the second he popped out of his egg to the moment when the last glimpse of the beautiful butterfly’s wings disappeared, the audience was completely enthralled.

  
(Excuse the slightly blurry photos, we were trying not to disturb anyone while taking them)

The puppeteers had absolutely limitless energy, and I can’t deny that I had all the feels when every child in the theatre joined in shouting ‘but he was still hungry!’

As someone who’s seen a lot of good theatre, I can definitely say this is one of the best shows I’ve seen, and not only that but it’s a genuine West-End quality show which you can see right here from the comfort of your own town. Thank you Middlesbrough Theatre!

So was the show worth waiting six months for? Absolutely! Now how soon can we see it again?? ❤️🐛❤️

We’re holding an InstaMeet – come and join us!

What exactly is an InstaMeet and why are we holding one? Good question! In a nutshell, an InstaMeet is where people gather in a pre-determined place, at a set time, to take photos then upload them to Instagram. And the reason we are holding our very first InstaMeet is because it’s English Tourism Week (25th March – 2nd April) and we want to shout out about how much we love Middlesbrough…but everyone already knows we do…so we want you to join in and help us shout even louder!

Are you with us?

First things first, get the boring, factual stuff out of the way. The Love Middlesbrough InstaMeet is on Saturday 1st April, from 10 – 11.30am. We’re meeting at 9.45am at Middlesbrough Train Station (Bridge Street West entrance). And best of all, it’s free! We’ve got 25 places available and we can’t wait for you to join us!

For the very first InstaMeet we’ve selected an area close to every Love Middlesbrough lass and lad’s hearts and everyone’s favourite bridge – Middlehaven. We’ll be walking from Transporter Park to Middlesbrough College via the bridge, Vulcan Street Wall, the Dock Clock and Temenos. We’ll finish up strolling back along (also known as battling the evil wind!) Bridge Street East and towards the station to return you safely home.

Book your free place via Eventbrite.

Please read the terms and conditions for the event so you’re up to date with all the boring but important stuff!

We’ll see you there!

Love Middlesbrough Lasses
