“I’m essentially a storymaker, and storyteller – I’m not sure which I love most.”
A son and grandson of actors, Michael Morpurgo has storytelling in his blood. This winter, the award-winning children’s author presents a very special festive event, as he brings the magic of his words to life. Morpurgo began writing stories in the early ‘70s, inspired by the children he taught in his primary school class in Kent. He has since written over 150 books, including The Butterfly Lion, Kensuke’s Kingdom, Private Peaceful and War Horse, which was adapted for a hugely successful stage production by the National Theatre and then, in 2011, for a film directed by Steven Spielberg.
Join one of the UK’s best-loved authors as he shares his gift for magical storytelling. He’ll be reading aloud from some of his favourite books: from adventures on the high-seas to his enduring story of a friendship between a boy and a horse, from a lost puffin and life-changing partnership to the excitement of landing the starring role in the Christmas play.
Cosy up with the whole family for a wonderful evening of Morpurgo’s greatest stories – it may even encourage you to tell some tales of your own.
