A CHILDREN'S favourite is coming to cinemas across the country to raise awareness of an important charity.

The beloved preschool series Peppa Pig will be celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion there are a host of events for fans including a brand new cinema release, Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun.

Also, the annual Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children will be taking place.

She will be returning to cinemas nationwide this April. The hour-long theatrical release offers 10 brand new and never-before-broadcast episodes featuring a two-part festival special, complete with new characters and locations.

It will be released in cinemas on April 5.

Continuing the anniversary celebrations, this Spring will also see the return of Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children.

Last year families and nurseries that took part helped to raise £225,000.

Kicking off on May 13 children can pull on their wellies and set off to jump in muddy puddles – real or imaginary.
