Event Description

“A long time ago, In the Kingdom of Candy, a lion once roamed the streets...,

Howled on the hour, whined on the minute, roared every second day of the year.”


This Christmas, take a trip to Pixel Valley, a magical world filled with positive vibes, colourful, mixed up characters and badminton.   

Come on an adventure with Polar Pear, Sledgehog, Cheffyl and the larger than life insatiable, inflatable Candylion… what will become of life in the valley when negative vibes take over the town?

Musicians and actors collide in this immersive production that blurs the line between a theatre show and sing-a-long live music gig, inspired by Gruff Rhys’ (Super Furry Animals) seminal album, Candylion.

Expect a mix of new songs and old favourites in a theatre gig for all ages. 


Y Nadolig hwn, ewch ar daith i Pixel Valley, byd hudol yn llawn egni positif, cymeriadau lliwgar a dryslyd a badminton. 

Dewch ar antur gyda Polar Pear, Sledgehog, Cheffyl a’r Candylion gwynt awchus llawn asbri - … beth fydd yn digwydd i fywyd yn y cwm pam fydd egni negyddol yn meddiannu’r lle?

Mae cerddorion ac actorion yn dod ynghyd yn y cynhyrchiad ymdrochol hwn sy’n uno sioe theatr a gig gerddorol llawn canu, wedi’i ysbrydoli gan albwm arloesol Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Candylion.

Cewch gymysgedd o ganeuon newydd a hen ffefrynnau mewn gig theatr i bob oed.

We need your help to chase the negative vibes out of Pixel Valley!

If you're coming to see The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion, please bring a Positive Vibe to give to a stranger. It may be a happy picture, a sock puppet, a joke or maybe just a hug!

Bring your positive vibes!!
