A spokesperson said: "It's just right for children age 2+ who love splashing around in puddles and running around in the sunshine.

"Ever found yourself being asked the big tricky questions by your little one? Things like: Why is it that sometimes I’m hot but you’re cold? Why are there puddles and sometimes not? How can it be sunny and rainy all at once and also not at all?

"And if it’s summer here, why is it winter there? Then bring them along to this bright and bouncy show that explores the weather in all its forms and delights in discovering the world anew. Their marvellous minds will be fizzing happily all day long."
