The Best Christmas Present in The World: Michael Morpurgo, Coope Boyes & Simpson
Almost a century after the famous 1914 Christmas Truce and the Anglo-German football match in No-Man's-Land, a forgotten letter found by chance in an antique desk brings one soldier's experience of the Great War hauntingly to life.
Michael Morpurgo (master-storyteller and bestselling author of War Horse) joins the compelling a cappella English folk trio, Coope, Boyes and Simpson in this rare performance of his heart-warming and spine-tingling story.
Recommended age 8+ years.
Tickets for this event go on sale on Monday 13th August 2012.
The author of over 90 books, Michael's reputation in the world of children's books is unmatched, 'The Sleeping Sword', 'Why The Whales Came' and 'Dear Olly' to name a few.
