DO check out our Literature stage UNDER THE TREE – we’ve got live performances of some funny, enchanting and silly stories for young children which celebrate the family in all its guises. Hosted by Lorna Gayle and directed by Jo McInnes, the stories will be performed live by a cast of actors Stefan Adegbola, Dan Copeland, Lorna Gayle, Jo Martin, Caleb Obediah & Lee Ross.
