See super Sylvia South and the Word Catcher in your local library!

Nottingham Libraries and The Sparks Arts for Children are proud to present their latest play – Sylvia South and the Word Catcher by Finegan Kruckemeyer.

There are stories you find when you open a book. And there are others…that wait to find you.
Sylvia South is settling in for a quiet day at her local library, when she looks up from the pages to see something outrageous. Knowing she’d best be off before something more terrible happens…something more terrible happens!
And suddenly Sylvia South is off on an adventure, navigating streets on a borrowed bicycle to chase a strange little man with an armful of other people’s books.
It would be an exciting story to read – if only she wasn’t inside it!

Designed with young audiences in mind this play is suitable for children aged 5+ and has a running time of 50mins. Come on down this summer and catch Sylvia South and the Word Catcher!

£2 a child. Accompanying adults free.
