Murray Lachlan Young: Modern Cautionary Tales for Children

A mixture of poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling, a touch of panto, and lots of fun participation from the very wonderful Murray Lachlan Young. A hilarious and positive route to showing children that poetry can be fun, thought-provoking and even quite cool!
 
A raucous, silly, scary, funny, poignant and enlightening hour of merriment and mayhem, packed with dark tales and nonsense. This show gets children dancing on-stage, completing simple fun poems, being ponies and getting seriously involved in live interactive poetry. Widely regarded as one of the UK's foremost performance poets BBC 6 Resident poet and a regular fixture on BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live , BBC Test Match Special, The Shipping Forecast  and current resident post on BBC 6 Music. Regular appearances at countless festivals include Glastonbury, WOMAD, Latitude, Isle of Wight and Edinburgh Festival.
                                             
“The great thing about the show is that it's about improvisation and connection and it's about having no fear, so you find yourself in a place where you can't fail.” Murray Lachlan Young

"One of the greatest children's entertainer's I have ever seen. Five stars.” The Scotsman
"Enchanting" Sunday Times
