Charming family fun this half term in Cockermouth

“Sometimes, there is a good reason to break the rules”

Looking for something to keep the little ones entertained this half term? Then look no further... Fusing music and performance this show is based on the much-loved book by Michelle Knudsen.

Miss Merriweather, the head librarian, is very particular about rules in the library. No running allowed. And you must be quiet. But when a lion comes to the library one day, no one is sure what to do. There aren't any rules about lions in the library. And, as it turns out, this lion seems very well suited to library visiting. His big feet are quiet on the library floor. He makes a comfy backrest for the children at story hour. And he never roars in the library, at least not anymore. But when something terrible happens, the lion quickly comes to the rescue in the only way he knows how.

This interactive theatre piece is the perfect treat for 3 to 7 year olds and their families, from the wonderful company who brought us The Boy Who Bit Picasso.


Full Price: £6
Family: £20 (2 adults and 2 children, or 1 adult and 3 children)
