New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Enjoy some Big Live Band festive fun
If you have preschool children who watch ABC Kids TV, you are sure to know about Lah-Lah's Big Live Band. This fun show introduces children to musical instruments and all the strange and wonderful sounds that they make. There are five characters and musicians in the show - Mister Saxophone, Squeezy Sneezy on the piano accordion, Tom Tom on drums, Buzz the Bandleader and the front lady full of joy, Lah-Lah.
On Saturday 21st of November Lah Lah and the band will be performing their Christmas Show at Woden Southern Cross Club. This interactive show will of course have music, dancing and a special Christmas appearance by the man in red. Kids are encouraged to dress up in red and white for their stripy Christmas theme.
Lah-Lah's Facebook page shows the fun to be had at their live shows and the behind the scenes photos of the band on tour. The kids (and us big kids!) will enjoy grooving away to their Big Live Band at this fun and festive show.
The tickets are general admission with a large area at the front near the stage to sit with your children on the floor, as well as rows of chairs behind. You can buy tickets online through Ticketek (with additional fees) of you can buy them in person from the Woden Southern Cross Club for $22 each. You don't need to be a member of the Southern Cross Club to buy tickets and attend this show.
Their website also has colouring-in pages and online games to keep your kids entertained between shows. They have an online Music Room where you can learn about musical instruments in their twenty minute tutorials. You can also join their "Stripy Sock Club" to get advance ticket sales, special offers and regular updates about Lah-Lah.

As a Mum, I enjoy these shows just as much as my daughter and this will be a great way to start the festive season together.
It also means that we will be singing their catchy theme song (below, courtesy of You Tube) for many weeks to come...
