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.

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,
