The war office has employed Bette and Vera to travel the country hosting tea dances to boost morale amongst local communities and RAF fighters. But how will the locals react when they discover the women’s real purpose: to send the young men off to fight having experienced all of life’s pleasures? Join the ladies in your local hall for an unforgettable dance, a rousing song, and a real-life, war time scandal that threatens to destroy the women’s lives, shame the community and tear apart one already splintered RCAF crew. Can you save the night?

In the Lands of the North where the black rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long, the Men of the Northlands sit around their great log fires and they tell a tale … The Sagas of Noggin The Nog. These classic stories created by Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin are playfully retold in this wonderful piece of family theatre. Accompanied by the brave and mighty Thor Nogson and the great, green bird Graculus, we go North on a journey of adventure and discovery to battle the fearsome Ice Dragon and the dastardly deeds of Noggin’s wicked uncle, Nogbad the Bad. Expect silly Vikings, performing puppets, original film and live music.

This beautiful children’s book is brought to life in celebration of an endangered species - the local library. Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren’t any rules about lions in the library. As it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story time. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how. This is a show that fuses storytelling, music, and interactive learning to immerse children in the world of the book. Above all it is fun, funny, and full of feline wonder!
