Tattie Bogle -- if you're going to the show, you'd be well advised to beg or borrow someone's wean.

The last time I went we had the 1+ year-old great niece, complete with a plastic bottle and lentil shaker (as required). It was both delightful and astonishing to watch her: she not only shook the shaker at appropriate moments as invited, but desisted from other noisemaking at inappropriate moments. And she was wide-eyed with amazement throughout!

Cilla and Artie have given an immense amount to children's entertainment over the years and have set a very high standard (the price reflecting their investment in great costumes and fabulous sets -- to clarify for Megan on Orkney).
