The Wiggles

  • It's Wiggle Time!

    It's an exciting new era for The Wiggles with a new generation of Wiggles fans singing and dancing with Anthony (Blue), Emma (Yellow), Lachy (Purple) and Simon (Red)!

    The Wiggles are the world's most popular children's entertainment group which formed in Sydney, Australia in 1991. Having been performing for over 25 years,  it's now the case that children who once saw the fab four of fun are now bringing their children to enjoy the best in early childhood entertainment! The last year has seen The Wiggles confirmed (GFK charts) as the #1 selling children's artist on DVD, the #1 children's entertainment live concert attraction, awarded a record 13 ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) awards for the Best Children's Album (making them the most awarded artist in any one category).

    The Wiggles performed to some 330,000 fans in 2016 at 143 locations globally with 332 shows in total. 2017 will have The Wiggles tour extensively through Australia, New Zealand and North America and touring the UK and Ireland too. Of course, The Wiggles are bringing along their good friends, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus.

    But until they come to a town near you, Anthony, Simon, Emma and Lachy can be seen on ABC Kids in their wonderful Wiggle Town TV series.

  • Anthony

    Anthony Field has been wiggling for over 25 years now! “What a milestone we have reached this year, loving the shows as much as ever, and of course meeting our wonderful audiences all over the world!”

    Way back in 1991, Anthony had an idea to record an album of early childhood music and The Wiggles were born. Anthony has produced The Wiggles music for most of their career and is the Creative Director of their exciting live shows. He is very proud that Emma, Lachy and Simon have become as much a part of the lives of young Wiggle fans as all The Wiggles before them.

    Anthony says, “The 'new Wiggles' are now going into their 4th year on the job, and it has been so heartwarming to see their popularity grow and grow. To today's under 5's, Emma, Lachy, Simon and I, are their Wiggles!”

    Anthony feels The Wiggles, from their inception, have had a principal objective to give children a positive experience and an 'ownership of music'. He believes it is still a guiding principal to each Wiggles theatrical experience.

    Anthony dedicates his performances to his family and would like to acknowledge the hard work of everyone behind the scenes at The Wiggles office and in Production and on Tour.

  • Emma

    Emma started dancing at the age of 4, with ballet and Irish dancing soon after. She then went on to study jazz, tap, contemporary, hip hop and character dancing. Emma completed her schooling at The McDonald College and received a full scholarship to study editing at Sydney Film School. She graduated her full time dance course at ED5International and went on to complete her masters in Media Arts and Production at UTS.

    Firstly, I want to say thank you to all the families who come to the shows. The amount of bow-tiful craft is overwhelming.

    Lachy (Purple Wiggle) and I were married in April 2016! Ever since we got engaged Anthony said he wanted to play the bagpipes and he practised every day. He piped me down the aisle. Simon and Anthony were groomsmen and our cake had yellow and purple painted flowers. It was a lovely occasion and we want to thank all the children for giving us wedding cards and celebrating with us all around the world.

    We have incorporated more sign language into our videos and our live performances. Working with the Deaf Society of NSW The Wiggles have included signing throughout live shows and into our choreography.

    So please enjoy the sign language, learn some signs, dance and wiggle along and have a bow-tiful day!\\\\\\\"
