Winter tales for families at library event

As the cold weather settles in, why not warm up with Another Wintery Tale, which features at Newton-le-Willows Library as part of the ninth season of the nationally-renowned Cultural Hubs programme.

Join the Story Collecting Explorers in their tent as they take shelter from the cold outside and tell tales from the deep of winter.

This family-friendly, interactive event – brought to St Helens by Altered Scale and Petite Ullaloom theatre companies on Saturday 2 December – is full of snowy fables, wintery songs and heart-warming stories.

Councillor Sue Murphy, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services and Libraries, said: “This charming production is great for families with young children, and is sure to get you in the festive spirit. It’s another great example of the variety Cultural Hubs curates for our libraries, making wonderful cultural events accessible to all.”

There are two showings at Newton-le-Willows Library, 11am and 1pm, each lasting around 45 minutes.

The showing at 1pm is a special relaxed performance, open to all families but adapted to ensure that it is more accessible for people with autism. Call the library on 01744 677885 to learn more about the relaxed performance, and to ask about arranging a visit to the library space prior to the performance.

Tickets are available on a ‘pay what you want’ basis. Book online at www.culturalhubs.eventbrite.co.uk or call into any St Helens library to purchase tickets.

Cultural Hubs, the award-winning arts-in-libraries programme, is delivered by St Helens Council’s Library Service and funded by Arts Council England.

Covering October to December, the ninth season has been curated to offer something for everyone, with a mixture of small theatre productions, music and comedy performances, arts exhibitions, and creative craft events to promote wellbeing – all adapted in imaginative ways for unique library spaces across St Helens.
