Two Little Piglets Visit The Cinema

Published on Wednesday, October 11th, 2023

A few weeks ago, two little pigs from Kew Little Pigs Farm in Amersham, Buckinghamshire attended a special cinema screening of Babe at The Garden Cinema in London’s Covent Garden.

Based on Dick’s story The Sheep-Pig, Babe tells the tale of a piglet who learned to herd sheep, and through hard work and politeness, wins first prize at the sheepdog trials.

You may think that piglets Bambi and Kingsley would find the glitz and glamour a little intimidating, but they are no strangers to interacting with the public. As well as living at the interactive Kew Little Pigs attraction, the trio regularly attend outside events, including school fetes, birthday parties and even weddings.

Throughout the screening the pigs mingled with the audience, and the tame and curious creatures provided a really unique animal encounter, creating an immersive experience of the classic Dick King Smith story of Babe.
