Free puppet adventures for Fleetwood children

A brand new show for babies and toddlers is coming to Fleetwood Library in September that will include free play activity days for local families.

“The Adventures of Pom” is a new show for children aged 0-4 and their families. The show itself will take place on Wednesday 16 September at 10.30am but there will also be two free play days in the two weeks prior to the show. All of the events are free but donations are welcome.

Follow Pom on her adventure with nature; as the seasons change and light turns to dark, Pom takes a step into a whole new world where her curious character leads her on a fantastical journey.

Pom shares a story that will inspire and delight children from weeks old, to full grown adults. Go on an adventure with Pom, exploring the sensory world of spring and winter through projections, soundscapes, storytelling, live music and objects.

Families in Fleetwood are encouraged to come along to the library on the mornings of 2 and 9 September and take part in free play activities from 9.30am. Join Pom’s creator, Ruthie Boycott Garnett for a free half hour of fun with your children. Suitable for under 4s.

“The Adventures of Pom” has been created in partnership with Big Imaginations, a region-wide group of venues and promoters dedicated to bringing brilliant children’s theatre to the North West.

The show forms part of Spot On Lancashire’s autumn season of touring, taking professional shows to libraries and village halls across the county. This season Spot On will be programming work in 11 Lancashire County Council Libraries for the first time as part of their new Spot On Libraries scheme, supported by Arts Council England.

Speaking ahead of the show, Spot On scheme manager, Sue Robinson, said:

“This is a really lovely show for young children and by making it free, along with the play days in the weeks before, we hope as many local families as possible will come along and get involved. This is the first show of our season so we’d love everyone with young children in Fleetwood to come and join us.”
