Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm and TV presenter Kate Garraway have attended a stage adaptation of a children's book about a bear hunt.

We're Going On A Bear Hunt, Michael Rosen's award-winning picture book about a family who set out an adventure to catch a bear, has been rewritten for the stage.

Among the celebrities was deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg who attended the show, at the Lyric Theatre in London's West End, with his wife Miriam Gonzalez Durantez and their children.

Chisholm (Sporty Spice) brought along her daughter Scarlet, while other celebrities and their children included TV star Les Dennis and ex EastEnders actress Jo Joyner.

The celebrity audience were squirted with water and sprinkled with a fake snowstorm as part of the show.

We're Going On A Bear Hunt, based on the book written by Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, runs at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue to September 8.

Writing stories gives you an opportunity to explore different ways of life without abandoning your own comfortable niche. Keep your project secret until you're satisfied with the results. A critic could take the wind out of your sails.More
