Tish Tash Screening in U.K. Theaters


The Light Cinemas has picked up the preschool series Tish Tash, co-produced by August Media Holdings, Studio Gale, EBS and Karrot Entertainment, for release in theaters across the U.K.

The theater chain will screen nine 30-minute Tish Tash compilations through January 2024. The first, Tish Tash: Family Weekend, began playing at the end of April. The next, Tish Tash: Family Moments, will begin screening in June.

More compilations include Let’s Play Outside (set for release June 30), Summer Heat (August 11), Back to School (September 15), Fancy Dress Party (October 13), Wet Weather (November 17), Festive Season (December 22) and Fantasy Worlds (January 2024).

Tish Tash follows the adventures of a young bear called Tish and her larger-than-life imaginary friend Tash as they learn about the world around them.

Chloe Fellerman, director of programming at The Light, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the award-winning Tish Tash adventures to our hugely popular Toddler Time program, which runs across all our venues. These engaging tales are ideal for our preschool audiences who can enjoy some active viewing, share the fun with their parents and carers and get an early introduction to the magic of the cinema. The cinemas also offer a range of activities including soft and messy play and reading time for guests to enjoy afterwards. It’s great for social interaction for both the kids and the parents.”

Jyotirmoy Saha, CEO of August Media Holdings, added: “I am thankful for the love children and parents from around the world have shown Tish Tash. We are excited with Tish and Tash making the journey from television and device screens to the cinemas. We hope that the screenings make for memorable outings that families will cherish for a long time.”
