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.

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