World Book Day 2019

Happy World Book Day 2019!

Posted on

Today is World Book Day! What better way to celebrate than with all the wonderful shows we have coming up, that see words leap magically off of the page and onto the stage?

Later this month, we will joining an intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they embark on a journey to find a bear in Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (28 - 31 Mar)! We're also running a We're Going on a Bear Hunt competition over on Facebook today, so make sure you get involved for a chance to win some great prizes.

Over the years, we've had many Julia Donaldson tales brought to life at The Haymarket, and now, the author herself will be presenting a show of her own, featuring six of her books during the Easter break in The Gruffalo, The Witch and The Warthog (7 - 9 Apr).

David Baddiel's ANiMALCOLM (27 Apr) will combine physical theatre, puppetry and outstanding storytelling, telling the wonderful story of Malcolm and his farmyard foes... or, friends?

If you've not had enough Julia Donaldson after her visit in April (we would argue there can't be too much!), make sure you catch her lively tale, Zog, as we follow the large in size, keen in nature dragon on his quest for a golden star.
