Hey Duggee marks summer solstice and music festival season

BBC Studios Kids & Family has unveiled a new Hey Duggee episode ‘The Carrot Badge’, set to premiere on CBeebies on 28 June.

The new series five episode kicks off the summer music festival season for little ones and their parents, as well as marking the summer solstice.

Hey Duggee brings seasonal fun to screens with its homage not only to the summer solstice, but also to UK festivals, airing just in time for the famous Glastonbury in June. The episode features the Rabbits busy preparing for the Carrot Solstice, the day when the sun is at its highest and they gather round Carrot Henge to celebrate the glory of this humble vegetable.

Trouble is, the Rabbits need to go and get ready for the festivities – but who will look after the carrots? The Squirrels volunteer, and off the Rabbits go. Then, disaster strikes. Worm pops up and eats part of Carrot Henge. Will Duggee fix the Henge in time, or will Carrot Solstice be ruined?

“We are very proud and thrilled to present this very special new episode of Hey Duggee just after the Summer Solstice and alongside Glastonbury Festival,” commented Liz Randall, Hey Duggee executive producer at BBC Studios. “This is such a fun way for parents to introduce these events to their children and for fans to celebrate the summer with Duggee and the Squirrels.”

The Carrot Badge is the first of 20 new episodes from the fifth series of Hey Duggee, timed to coincide with festival season.

Further series five episodes will premiere on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer later this year.
