The Penny Readings Festival: Festive fun at the Ha’penny Readings
There are just four days and counting until The Penny Readings Festival arrives in St George's Hall. We can't wait for the festive fun to begin, and there'll be lots of it in store to send levels of Christmas cheer soaring.
The Ha'penny Readings, our family-friendly festive extravaganza, will be returning for the fourth year at 2.30pm in the Concert Room this Sunday. Just like their older sibling the Penny Readings, the show is sold out, but there will be a live video-link for the Ha'penny Readings on a first-come, first-served basis.
Once again, there's a packed line-up of reading, comedy and music for the whole family to enjoy. Amongst the very special guests on the bill are the High Sheriff of Merseyside, the Take a Hint Theatre Company showcasing highlights from their reading for pleasure play 'Tales that Time Forgot', wacky comic fun from Sticky Floor and tons of Christmassy reading from some of our finest young readers, including a suitable seasonal performance from Caldies Creatives.
If you've got your tickets for the show, why not come along early to enjoy our absolutely free Penny Readings Festival? There'll be reading for the whole family, stalls, refreshments and a whole load of fun to be had, all starting from an hour before the Ha'penny Readings at 1.30pm.
We can't wait to see you there!
