It's World Book Day, and today we're celebrating the fantastic authors that will be at our venues over the coming year.
Ever wondered what a band of best-selling crime authors and a variety of instruments would sound like? Fun Lovin' Crime Writers (1 Apr) bring you just that!
With best-selling children's stories Shark in the Park (8 Apr) and Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales (4 - 5 Jul), these performances are an ideal moment for children to engage with works of fiction, introducing them to the world of theatre from a young age.
If you loved BBC's Pride and Prejudice, we've got just the thing for you. We'll be joined by Adrian Lukis as he tells us what it was like Being Mr Wickham (1 Jun).
And what would World Book Day be without a nod to the most successful book franchise of all time, Harry Potter. Grab your wands and house robes, and get ready for Spontaneous Potter (11 Sep) this autumn.
Finally, having made the nation laugh for more than 40 years, Pam Ayres (29 Oct) will be bringing her new show to The Anvil, with poems and stories from her new book Up In The Attic.
