From Old Mother Hubbard To A Koala That Loves To Hug
The Lichfield Garrick has got family entertainment covered this spring with two fantastic shows and a family day aimed at encouraging children to explore all aspects of theatre. Theatrical treats start with the return of the theatre's monthly Family Days on Saturday 19 March when fans young and older will be able to see a performance of Old Mother Hubbard, aimed at 3 to 7 year olds.

The Family Days give local families the opportunity to experience all elements of the performing arts with lots of fun-filled free activities and affordable workshops throughout the Garrick building. Families can also join in with the new Comedy School for Kids, bring out their creative side with local artists, follow the story-tellers on a magical adventure, or have a go at writing poetry.
Old Mother Hubbard forms part of monthly Family Day
As part of the March 19 Family Day, Old Mother Hubbard will be performed in the theatre's studio at 11am and 2pm, with tickets priced at £10 for adults and £7 for children. The performance promises to be an ideal first theatrical experience for 3 to 7 year olds. Less than a fortnight later theatre fans have the chance to see the charming family musical, How The Koala Learnt To Hug, based on the best-selling book by Steven Lee.
Written especially for children aged three and above, How The Koala Learnt To Hug is a warm and wonderful story about picnics and bubbles and the magic of family. Starting at 2.30pm, the show costs £10 for adults and £7 for kids.
