BBC Studios and Vue Cinemas deal sees Hey Duggee bound to the big screen

BBC Studios and Studio AKA have teamed up with Vue Cinemas to bring the CBeebies hit show Hey Duggee to cinemas across the UK.

‘Hey Duggee at the Cinema’ will feature seven Hey Duggee episodes from series one and two, along with additional content for kids to dance along to.

The sixty-minute film will launch on Friday, January 18th.

Sue Goffe, head of production at Studio AKA, said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Vue Cinemas. The screenings promise to be great fun for all ages and a lovely opportunity for families with young children to see Duggee and the Squirrels in some of their favourite episodes.”

Johnny Carr, alternative content manager at Vue UK and Ireland, added: “This January will see another unmissable family screening when Hey Duggee comes to Vue. 

"The opportunity for kids to see their favourite television characters on the big screen will make it a great trip for the whole family.”

Hey Duggee, a Studio AKA production with BBC Studios, is a six time BAFTA and international Emmy award-winning hit on CBeebies, which consistently ranks as one of the top three programmes on the channel. 

The show has an impressive global footprint in over 150 territories and had over 50 million iPlayer requests in 2018. Series three is currently in production and is expected to air on CBeebies later this year.
