“A wonderful story brilliantly told… the audience were entranced from start to finish.” ~ ★★★★★ London News

Award-winning performer and storyteller Danyah Miller vividly brings to life this enchanting tale by former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo (author of War Horse).

‘Why The Whales Came’ is full of fun, mystery and adventure set in the midst of WW1. Children Gracie and Daniel have been forbidden to go near the mysterious and seemingly dangerous ‘Birdman’. But messages and clues intrigue them and, after being lost at sea in the fog and stranded on his tiny island, they begin to unravel the Birdman’s secrets, the villagers’ fears and superstitions, and learn why exactly the whales came to the island.

Aimed at ages 7+ (not suitable for under 7s). Duration approx. 60 mins. Part of Shoreham Wordfest.

£12 adult + child, £5 per extra child.
