Justin's Party, Bradford Alhambra, Saturday and Sunday

IT almost feels like children's entertainment star Justin Fletcher is a part of our family as it is.

His TV shows have been the backdrop to home life since our little girl was born, from Something Special to Justin's House and Gigglebiz.

So, we were delighted when we learned he was embarking on his own theatre tour with song and dance show Justin's Party.

Given his massive popularity with under-fives in particular, it was little surprise all the Bradford Alhambra shows were sell-outs.

And the hundreds of eager families packed into the venue were not to be disappointed.

Entertaining and engaging set designs were matched by the exuberant performances from Justin and his gang, as they sang and danced their way through a captivating 90-minute set. Streamers and fireworks added to the visual attraction, and a surprise visit by a certain Mr Tumble threatened to bring the house down... literally!

There's something, well, special about Justin. His ability to pitch his shows at such a young audience has no equal, and the rousing ovation at the end of the show was richly deserved.

Great family fun at its best.
