How to Catch a Book Witch 

Kira loves reading, visiting the library for a new book is her favourite thing. One day the words in the books start to disappear and the adults start to get grumpy. Graham Grey says the library will be knocked down to make way for a car park! With her new friend the book worm, Kira has to uncover why words are vanishing and where these book monsters have come from! Could there be a Book Witch in the library?

An open hearted show aimed at children aged 3+. Exploring the importance of libraries, sharing stories and not judging people. The show features live music, puppetry and storytelling.

Created with accessibility at its core this show included key word signing, captions and integrated audio description.  The show was funded by The Arts Council England and Feast Cornwall with support from AMATA at Falmouth university.
