Paddington Bear's First Concert

I was so disappointed with this performance today. The musical arrangement is lovely and it's a clever performance but totally not aimed at the 2 and 4 year olds I was accompanying. The older child just about got the gist of things but asked several times when Paddington was coming. The poster has a giant Paddington but there was not so much as a teddy bear here. Audience participation was quite limited and the 3 children behind me slept through the whole event. I entertained the 2 year old with games on my phone to prevent a tantrum as he wanted to know when the train was coming. My only concern is that this event is aimed at children from zero upwards but children of 6 or above would get a lot more out of it and there were many disgruntled children and families leaving this event. We had paid £7.80 per ticket for all, so over £50 for our group alone. We were so excited but all went away disappointed.
