Event Details


We welcome back magical children’s storyteller MICHAEL LOADER and Wild Words the makers of ‘Glorious Greeks’ who will again open his Pandora’s Box of theatre, song, buffoonery, puppets, props and participation culminating in an awesome adventure play. This extra special children’s event is in two parts. The first is a pre-show Playshop involving all the children and the second is the Performance of Sinbad The Sailor.

Jump on board an ancient sewn sailing ship from the Middle East, hoist the mainsail and journey across the Arabian Sea to destinations unknown for adventure after adventure with one of the most famous seafarers of all time……. Sinbad the Tailor oops errgh? Sinbad the Emailor errgh … ? SINBAD THE SAILOR … Ahh!

Join his reckless crew to escape from the spew and spit of a spuming whale, to marvel at a somersaulting sheep bejewelled with precious stones and to confront the dangers of moustache propelling frogs!

Hairdryers, hoovers, and houmus included, belly dancing optional!

So Salem ‘alaykum’ greetings of Peace to  you from Sinbad the Sailor – may your  beards grown, your baked beans prosper and your brexit plans be forgiven and  bare fruit for all … in’sha’llh.

LAUREN ST JOHN – Kat Wolfe Investigates 

BridLitKids is delighted to welcome Lauren St. John,  one of the most imaginative story-tellers, to talk about her latest book: Kat Wolfe Investigates – the first in a new series of stories set on our very own Jurassic Coastline. Twelve year old Kat Wolfe loves her new home set in idyllic Bluebell Bay, especially since it comes with a resident wildcat! But when she starts a pet sitting service for pocket money, she finds that beneath the town’s perfect surface there are some dark and dangerous secrets for her to investigate.

Lauren grew up on a farm and game reserve in Zimbabwe and this led her to become a passionate conservationist.

This is an exciting opportunity for children to hear Lauren talk about her work and to answer questions against the backdrop of the Dorset landscape which so inspired her as well as the tales of animals of all kinds in Africa.
