Family Theatre: Luna Loves Library Day - The Musical

Touring Inspire Libraries Saturday 9 March - Sunday 10 March 2024

Join Luna and her Dad for an adventure among the library shelves in this exciting new musical for families.

Luna looks forward to one special day… Library Day! 

It’s the day when she discovers magic among the library shelves, from dinosaurs to mummies, unexplained mysteries to monsters and magic. 

But for Luna, Library Day is also a chance to spend time with Dad, making it all the more special.

Based on the critically acclaimed book by Waterstones Children's Laureate Joseph Coelho and illustrator Fiona Lumbers, join Luna and Dad as they discover magic and mystery, laughter and sadness and, through the power of stories, even start to mend their own history.

Adapted for the stage by award winning poet and author Joseph Coelho, with music and lyrics by David Gibb, Luna Loves Library Day is the perfect treat for children aged 5+ and their families.

Luna Loves Library Day is a co-production from Little Seeds Music and Z-arts.
