Olivier Award nominated Wizard Presents brings bestselling children’s author Michael Morpurgo’s treasured story to life.

 
This intimate show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady in his local library… An enchanting and interactive production, I Believe in Unicorns, which won an Argus Angel Award for Artistic Excellence at Brighton Festival, sparks imagination in both young and old. We challenge you not to believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’ spellbinding journey.
 

‘Danyah’s performance is a tour de force. The show is moving and memorable, a glorious example of the magic of storytelling. I didn’t like it, I loved it!‘ Michael Morpurgo

This is a past event
A magical and captivating show celebrating the joy of stories and books in an beautifully performed, multi-layered and surprising show
