Drop in, 18:00-19:00, Cosmic Pirates Zone
Saturday 18 June
with Suffolk Libraries
Inspired by the British Library’s touring exhibition Marvellous and Mischievous: Literature’s Young Rebels, join Suffolk Libraries for a very special bedtime story ‘Mischief and Mystery in Moomin Valley’
Be sure to pack your imagination and join us on an unforgettable journey to Moomin Valley where everyone is welcome, nature thrives and adventures are plentiful. Magical puppetry, an ingenious set, original music and interactive play will delight young audiences and encourage them to immerse themselves in a unique participatory story-telling experience. Expect snow, surprises and plenty of Moomin mischief!
Based on the much-loved Moominland novels by Tove Jansson, this gentle heart-warming show tells the story of a year in Moominvalley.
Each section of the story has an interactive element; audience members have a snowball fight, building a camp-fire and go sea-swimming. The characters of Moomintroll, Snufkin, Little My and Thingummy & Bob are brought to life with 2D rod puppets and life size 3D puppets. The show uses beautiful original music and songs, and pre-recorded narration. The iconic Tove Jansson illustrations are recreated in a magical pop up book.
Perfect for families as our tepee has seating and is breastfeeding friendly.
