Four local Buckinghamshire libraries to stage theatre performance during the February 2020 half term
Four local Buckinghamshire libraries are to stage a unique and fun theatre performance during the February 2020 half term.
High Wycombe, Iver Heath, Buckingham and Chesham libraries will be hosting a production of ‘The Goose Who Flew‘ by leading young people’s theatre, ‘Half Moon‘.
The production is especially aimed at children aged 3 to 7 years and uses puppetry to tell a story about migration and meeting new people. ‘The Goose Who Flew‘ is a touching story about how Goose flies south for the winter, meeting lots of quirky characters along the way.
The performances, perfect for a half term family treat, are part of a new initiative across Buckinghamshire Libraries, delivered by Farnham Maltings with funding from the Rothschild Foundation.
Councillor Gareth Williams, Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health at Buckinghamshire County Council, said: ‘We are really excited to be using our libraries as venues for these performances and we really hope local families will come along! It promises to be a real half term highlight and a very high quality show with big names Half Moon and Lots of Odds theatre putting on the production.
We pride ourselves on how our libraries are real community assets and offer so much more than just traditional book borrowing. Take a look online to see what else is on offer at your local library!‘
