All about the Singing Kettle

Over the years, the Singing Kettle grew from being a small show for children, touring playgroups and schools, to the biggest box office draw in the UK.


Singing Kettle Early shows were based on clues for songs inside brightly coloured kettles. While this principle was always central to the action, plot lines and stage sets were built around imaginative story lines, transforming the original concept into a spectacular musical for the whole family.

The Singing Kettle turned children’s theatre into an art form and their unique performances became the bench mark for fellow professionals everywhere.

They performed in hundreds of venues, from the Palladium in London to the Town Hall in Campbeltown, from the Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock to the Royal Palace in Jordan. BAFTA award winning and decorated with MBEs for services to children’s entertainment, audiences worldwide were hooked on their madcap musical adventures flavoured with cheeky Scottish humour. Adults and children alike found themselves singing the songs together long after the performances were over.
