WHEEE! Lakeside's International Children's Theatre and Dance Festival

Wednesday 6 June – Sunday 10 June, from 11am daily Angear Visitor Centre, Djanogly Art Gallery £6 (for one adult plus one child) Suitable for 4+ Running time 5 minutes Please call Box Office on 0115 846 7777 to book a ticket. Adapted from Oliver Jeffers’ award-winning book Theatre in a Booth! This is the story of Henry , a boy with a voracious appetite for books – in fact he eats them! Henry loves books, and realises that the more books he eats, the smarter he becomes. But a book-eating isn’t the most healthy of diets, as Henry soon finds out... Set in a black box booth with room for only one adult with a child on their knee, this is maybe the smallest – and shortest – theatre experience you'll had, but with the puppetry, music and projection it will be so worth it! "Enchanting and Adorable" Three Weeks "An outstanding experience for children" Fringe Review
