Can my child take part in their favourite CBeebies show?

Most children taking part in CBeebies programmes are found by means of casting sessions run by our production teams to find children to take part in a particular show.

Such casting sessions usually take place in schools and nurseries, and take account of many factors - for example, different shows require different types of contribution, such as specific age ranges, or links to the subject matter of the programme.

Whenever there are any open opportunities to take part in our programmes, details will be posted on this page and promoted through our social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter.

You can also keep up to date with all the BBC's live events and audience opportunities by registering with the BBC Shows, Tours and Events website.

If there aren't any current opportunities listed here, it means that we're not currently looking for children to take part in any filming. We regret that we are unable to consider requests for individual children or specific schools or nurseries to take part in future programmes.

Ferne & Rory’s Vet Tales series 2 are looking for new stars!

CBeebies Animal experts Ferne and Rory are back and ready to meet more children, more poorly pets and more fantastic vets from all over the UK!

After a wonderful first series of Ferne & Rory’s Vet Tales, the team are now looking for applications for series 2.

From a pregnant parrot to a snake with scurvy; an itchy iguana to a diabetic dog: if you know a child aged 4 – 7 years with a pet who needs the care of a vet, we want to hear from you! We want to help children understand that, just like us, animals get sick and can sometimes need a little help from the experts.

No animal is too big, too small, too loud or too hairy!

• We are looking for confident, chatty and outgoing children, aged 4 – 7 years, who have an adult family member also willing to take part in the filming.

• The pet doesn’t need to be a house pet! It can be a farm animal, a nursery pet, or even an animal within the community, but the child must have a connection to the animal and the animal must have an existing condition.

• If selected, filming will be a maximum of three days at some point between May and October 2018.
