Shoreham Wordfest presents Cautionary Tales for Children, with Murray Lachlan Young

From the moment Murray Lachlan Young bounds onto the stage, hair wrapped in a towel, dressing gown flapping, you know you’re in for a good time.

Young is clearly one of the most likeable performers in the world. Best of all, he knows exactly what your average 5–10-year-old is interested in: toilets, poo and death being three key subjects discussed during the show.

A mixture of poetry, stand-up comedy, storytelling and a touch of panto make for a hilarious and positive route to showing children that poetry can be fun, thought-provoking and occasionally quite cool!

A raucous, silly, scary, funny, poignant and enlightening hour of merriment and mayhem.

Family, wordfest21

Saturday 9th October 2021 - Starts 10.30am
