Review: Hi-5 Surprise Party, St.David’s Hall, Cardiff

I first became aware of the phenomenon know as Hi-5 nearly 6 years ago when my daughter first discovered children’s television.

The band, originating from Australia, comprising of 2 boys and 3 girls frequently captivated my daughter with half an hour of songs stories and imaginative dancing, always encouraging the viewer to join in. It seems the success of Hi-5 also took the band by surprise, embarking on a UK tour a few years ago, it seemed it was impossible to fulfil touring demands in both the UK and Australia as well as creating new TV shows, so a UK equivalent of Hi-5 was created.

So it was Hi-5 UK version, Cat, Chris, Emma, Jenny and Luke that visited St David’s hall on Sunday afternoon for their surprise party show and judging by the reception they got when appearing on the stage, not one child minded a bit.

The special stage performance comprised of everything you would expect from the TV show with much in the way of song dance and storytelling. Hi-5 were preparing a surprise birthday party for their friend Chat the Caterpillar and for nearly 90 minutes the group kept every child and dare I say most parents mesmerised, encouraging interaction through dancing and singing along.

My three children particularly loved the show and it was certainly the most pleasant of rainy Sunday afternoons they had enjoyed in a very long time!
