Paw Patrol Live - The Great Pirate Adventure


Paw Patrol, a childrens programme probably every parent knows. My son will sing all the songs and do a dance when it comes on TV. He's a bit of a Paw Patrol fan to say the least and his favourite character is Chickaleta, a character we weren't sure -  would be there. We were lucky enough to be invited along to see Paw Patrol Live - The Great Pirate Adventure at the SEC Hydro, so did it pass the kids test? Because what the child thinks is the only opinion that matters here right?



"In PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure,” Mayor Goodway is getting everything shipshape for a big Pirate Day celebration in Adventure Bay. However, when Cap’n Turbot falls into a dark and mysterious cavern, it’s PAW Patrol to the rescue!"

On Saturday 4th August we went along to the SEC to see Paw Patrol live - The Great Pirate Adventure. Leon didn't find out about it until we were leaving the house, he wouldn't shift until we told him where we were going but I don't think it quite sunk in at first, not until we had collected our tickets and then saw lots of children dressed as characters from the show. There was a sea on mini Chase's, Rubble's, Sky's, the lot! It was so cute and Leon started to realise where we were which meant he was in full excitement mode.


We were lucky enough to be quite near the front and I'm pretty sure that made the experience even better, it felt like we were in amongst the actions. Leon was very excited to see all the pups but he was most excited to see Chickaletta, we knew Mayor Goodway would be there but the jury was out on Chickaletta so I was keeping all my fingers and toes crossed that the feisty little chicken would make an appearance.



The show started off with Cap'n Turbot coming onstage and setting the tone for the rest of the show, the actor playing him was fantastic and I was even gripped to the story, he was animated and perfect for children's entertainment. Leon was bouncing on his seat, hanging on every word and suddenly, Ryder was on stage and all the children went wild! Cheers filled the room and we saw kids jumping with joy all around, Leon being one of them. The atmosphere throughout was magical, and when all the pups came on? Well.... the children were going off with excitement.


The pups has lots to do, rescuing Cap'n Turbot, out smarting Mayor Humdinger, finding treasure and having a fab pirate day in adventure bay. From a parents point if view I feel like the show is a great experience for children, seeing my own son watch on with pure enjoyment was amazing, it was worth going to for sure. There was an intermission which was good, giving people time to go to the toilet or get something to drink etc.... it also meant the children weren't having to sit for a long period of time. Throughout the whole show the kids were able to interact with little pirate flags that were given out and by shouting out, I liked that the children were included rather than having to just watch on, I prefer when children are able to interact personally because I think it keeps their attention for longer because they are still little.

I genuinely think this show was a massive hit, Leon LOVED it, that's for sure and other people we spoke to on the day said how much fun their child had which makes it worth seeing, just knowing that the children are happy and enjoyed it because it's for them after all.

Now, I said that it would be a child's opinion on it all that matters right? because it's for them after all! So here is a little interview I conducted with Leon to get his full thoughts on the show. I should note that Leon is 4 and he is a big paw patrol fanatic so it will be interesting to hear his thoughts. 

Q: Were you excited to see Paw Patrol on stage?
A: Yeah, it was generous of them to be there, I was so excited
Q: Who was your favourite character from the show? 
A: Marshal, Chase, Ryder, Chickaletta and Cap'n Turbot
Q: What was your favourite part of the show?
A: The end when Mayor Humdinger was in the red suit because that was funny and when the merpups had the key
Q: Would you watch it again?
A: Yeah and see what it's all about again 
Q: Did you have a good time? 
A: Can we go again and see Marshal?

  1. My kids loved last years and had a great time I'm looking at taking them again this year. Others we have done include Disney on Ice, Milkshake, In the night garden live and peppa pig. The choice for kids entertainment on stage is getting better and better each time my children love it.
