If you’re looking for ways to keep the family entertained this half term then The Citadel has got you covered. Not one but two stars of Cbeebies will be coming to St Helens to provide lots of fun for you and the family.
First up we have Dommy B who will be here on February 11 and 12. Dommy has already been in to Primary Schools in the area this month to share his Poetry for kids. And on Saturday, he’ll be taking over one of the empty retail spaces in Church Square, St Helens, to deliver his fun poetry workshops which have proved very popular with school children in the area. These are free to access and take place at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm, you can find him in the shop next to St Mary’s Market entrance in Church Square.
On Febraury 12, Dommy will be performing his own version of the well known fable, ‘The Boy who Cried Wolf’; A tale about Jamie who has the boring job of looking after the sheep, waiting for a wolf that never comes, hoping for something exciting to happen.
One week later and Patrick Lynch of Lyngo Theatre will be at the Citadel to perform one of the best children’s classics; The Curious Adventures of Pinocchio. Crickets, cats, foxes and, of course, the world-famous puppet, will spring out of Patrick’s collection of dusty, old, magic books, as he pulls all the strings and turns all the pages to bring you the true story of Pinocchio, no lie. Who nose? He might even find his father and become a real boy. Come and join him on his incredible journey, you’ll have a whale of a time!
Both shows are suitable for ages 5+ and their families. The venue on both dates will open at 2pm and there’ll be a free crafts session to keep the kids entertained while they wait for the show to start at 2.30pm. To book your tickets call 01744 735 436 or book online at www.citadel.org.uk.
