Saturday Mash-Up: audience opportunity (PARTICIPANTS ONLY)

Dear Parent / Guardian,

We have some exciting news!

Toonspeak has been invited to take part in CBBC’s show ‘Saturday Mash-Up’ on Saturday 10 December 2022. They are looking for audience members aged 9-12 years for their live show, so we are putting this out to all of our Toonies  9-12 years

What is Saturday Mash-up? Saturday Mash-Up is a live Saturday morning show which transmits each week from 9.00-11:30am on the CBBC channel. Think of the classic Saturday morning shows like Live & Kicking, SMTV Live and even Dick & Dom in the Bungalow! The show is full of great guests, games and slime and this is where you come in – there’ll be a live studio audience participating in all the fun! There will be an opportunity to meet the presenters and every show will include different celebrity guests.

We ask that you click this link Parent/Guardian Information Letter and read the key information before signing your young person up. Once you have looked over this, if you wish to sign them up then please contact Katie on 07818 686 267 by 8pm Thursday 10 November as BBC producers require numbers by the morning of Friday 11 November.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have or if you would like to chat a bit more about it with Katie.

Many thanks,
Toonspeak
