About

Arguments and poo! Sex and swearing! Blood, sweat, tears and giant rabbits! Life on the set of Teletubbies might not have been quite as you imagined…
Nikky Smedley played LaaLaa (the yellow one) in the original series of Teletubbies for six years - that's a lot of custard for a grown woman to get excited about. Come and hear how she got the job by dressing as a bistro table; what it was really like inside one of those (surprisingly large) Tubby suits; how the NooNoo really worked and why children loved the show so much.

Fresh from sell-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe, Confessions of a Teletubby is loosely based on Nikky's best-selling book Over the Hills and Far Away - My Life as a Teletubby published in 2022. Better than the book, though, is having the real and original LaaLaa, live in person, giving you information that has been kept under wraps for twenty-six years. You'll hear frank, hilarious and sometimes tragic stories of the human experience within a truly surreal world. Plus you'll have the chance to ask Nikky anything you've always wanted to know about Teletubbies.
