In October and November, audiences at ‘The Library Presents…’ found theatre staged with spotlights, props and sets.

Audiences giggled at James Campbell’s ‘Comedy 4 Kids’ and were moved by Jane Bower’s ‘Daddy’s Diaries’ while others got into Brazilian rhythms at samba drumming workshops.

Comedy for Kids - James Campbell. Comedy for Kids - James Campbell.

Six volunteers from the local community joined library staff to help run the events alongside Babylon ARTS members advising on everything from bar prices to stage lighting.

One parent said: “I was crying it was so funny. I loved It. My little boy laughed lots.”

Another described it as “an excellent, very interesting, event”.

A third said: “Great workshop. We had lots of fun.”

In February and March 2018 ‘The Library Presents…Arts Alive’ will be back in Soham and Littleport. Tickets are on sale online and in libraries from December 2017. The full programme is available at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/arts.

Anyone interested in volunteering should call 01223 706 779.
