20th March 2015
Today is the World Day of Theatre for Children and Young People!
Shared theatre experiences are a great way to spark conversation between us and our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Reading the book (or having your children read it to you) is another way to maximise the experience to make it extra special.
To celebrate this special day, we are offering everyone that purchases tickets TODAY for a performance of Moominpappa at Sea the chance to win a copy of the book!
Give your children the chance to see, hear, think, feel and imagine these holidays by booking your tickets today.
