“One of the greatest children’s entertainers I have ever seen. Five stars.”
A mixture of poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling, a touch of panto, and lots of fun participation from the very wonderful Murray Lachlan Young. A hilarious and positive route to showing children that poetry can be fun, thought-provoking and even quite cool! A raucous, silly, scary, funny, poignant and enlightening hour of merriment and mayhem, packed with dark tales and nonsense. This show gets children dancing on-stage, completing simple fun poems, being ponies and getting seriously involved in live interactive poetry.
Widely regarded as one of the UK’s foremost performance poets, Murray is a regular fixture on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, BBC Test Match Special, The Shipping Forecast and current resident poet on BBC 6 Music. Regular appearances at countless festivals include Glastonbury, WOMAD, Latitude, Isle of Wight and Edinburgh.
