Preschool characters Bing and Flop joined hundreds of excited young cinema-goers at a special premiere event of the CBeebies Panto, Dick Whittington and His Cat which took place on Sunday 27 November, at Cineworld Leicester Square.
The premiere screening – held in support of BBC Children in Need – saw Bing and Flop join other CBeebies stars on the red carpet including cast members of this year’s production: Ben Cajee, Tyler Collins, Andy Day, Justin Fletcher and Maddie Moate.
As special guests, Bing and Flop posed for photos, took part in the ‘Fun in the Foyer’ activities and joined the on-stage introduction of the premiere screening. Attendees of the premiere were also given Bing goodies to take home including stickers and wearable cardboard Bing ears.
The CBeebies Panto, Dick Whittington and His Cat is available for families to watch in cinemas across the UK from Saturday 3 December.
Bing airs on CBeebies every morning and is one of the most requested preschool shows on BBC iPlayer. The festive special – Bing is Getting Ready for Christmas – is available to watch on the Bing YouTube channel where it has been viewed close to two million times.
