Comedic performers Laura Mugridge and Tom Adams are set to present Bookish in St Helens libraries, a unique collection of five brand new comedy shows inspired by popular books, as part of the award-winning Cultural Hubs arts-in-libraries programme.
Each performance is a blend of comedy, live original music, a quiz and stories of Tom and Laura’s experiences when finding out more about the books. Most importantly, there will be a live vote by audience members to decide which two books will be performed from a choice of The London A-Z; Ginger: My Story, the autobiography of Ginger Rogers; The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro; The Dairy Book of Family Cookery, and Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected.
This live performance takes place on Thursday 22 March at Newton-le-Willows Library at 2pm, and Billinge Library at 7pm.
Councillor Sue Murphy, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services and Libraries, said:
“Cultural Hubs is an exciting project that allows us to bring a fantastic range of arts events into our libraries. This unique and full of life performance is great for families, adults and teens and is overall a must-see performance.”
The show lasts 2 hours, tickets cost £6, (£5 for St Helens Library Card holders) or £3 for concessions. Book online at www.culturalhubs.eventbrite.co.uk or call into any library in St Helens.
