Badjelly the Witch, the much-loved, utterly loony Spike Milligan classic, is this year’s Glow Show!

Nearly 100,000 Kiwi kids, parents and educators have seen a Glow Show; come and join the fun with the frolicking, witchy-poo, super-fun Badjelly the Witch!

The brilliantly nonsensical tale is being entirely reimagined with the unique Glow Show treatment.

The Glow Show’s utterly original mash-up of science, puppetry and music is a glorious experience for children and this year it will be a wonderfully nostalgic event for adults.

The goofiness of Bare Bottom Land, the giggle-inducing catch-cries like “Stinky poo to all of you!”, and the larger-than-life characters of Badjelly are set to bring a little fright and lots of fun to more than 30 venues across Aotearoa from July 5.

Don't miss out!

    Camping

    Les and Fleur are a middle-aged couple at the end of their tether. Francis and Connie are newly-weds terrified of getting it on. They’ve double booked a romantic getaway at a kiwi bach in the middle of nowhere, but we’re not sure which is raging harder - the storm outside, or the hormones inside!
