Join Pip on an epic journey of discovery!

If your little ones are looking for something new and exciting this November, then why not join Pip on her Riverboat Adventure!

This special Zoom performance sees BBC Bitesize puppet Pip come to life with Cre8 Theatre in a whirlwind adventure around the many bends of river life.

On her rocky riverboat adventure Pip learns all about the world around her, meeting an array of colourful new friends in unexpected places. Her diverse new friendship group equips her for the journey and enriches her experiences. Through challenging teamwork and mindfulness Pip and her new friends create a shared place that’s safe for everyone.

Funded by Ards and North Down Good Relations and Arts Service, the play explores themes of the world around us, friendship and diversity and has received widespread acclaim from audiences who have already enjoyed the show.

Developed and performed by Sarah Lyle from Cre8 Theatre, who has recently been awarded an Individual Artist Digital Evolution Award from Arts Council Northern Ireland, the play is 100% live and interactive.  Local ladies Katie Richardson and Lata Sharma have also been involved, creating lots of original music and adventure, perfect for entertaining a younger audience.

Ards and North Down Community Arts Officer, Amy McKelvey said: “We are so delighted to have been able to work with the Good Relations team to develop this performance and to bring live theatre to young audiences.”

“During these challenging times young people have not had as much opportunity to enjoy the thrill of going to see a show, so this is a really wonderful chance for them to engage with Pip and all of her puppet friends.”

Three performances of the play will take place on Saturday 20 November – via Zoom at 11am, 1:30pm and 3pm. The play runs for 25 minutes.

This is a free event, but booking is essential. Book your space now at and ensure you don’t miss the boat!
