I Believe in Unicorns

Sat 4 - Sun 5 Nov, 2023 Archive
An enchanting and interactive production, I Believe in Unicorns sparks imagination in both young and old. We challenge you not to believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’ spellbinding journey.

This intimate show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady in his local library…  

Winner of the Argus Angel Award for Artistic Excellence at Brighton Festival.

Book Swap

I Believe in Unicorns also includes a ‘book swap’, for which audience members are invited to bring along a favourite children’s book (for ages 6 and upwards) to help form part of the stage set at the beginning of the show. At the end the children are invited to swap their book for another one and so have a new story ‘from the library’ to take home with them.
