THE highs and lows of parenting will be the topic at a show in Bridgwater this month.

Sam Avery: The Learner Parent is coming to the McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater on October 20.

A million nappies, Peppa Pig episodes and a head-full of hair loss all feature as he shares the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood.

"Sam's honest, messy account of wrestling with sleep deprivation and breast pumps - right through to his botched attempts at discipline and pathetic bids to stifle various toddler tantrums that definitely registered on the Richter scale - will have you testing your pelvic floor with laughter," said a spokesman.

Tickets cost £17 via
