THERE’S lots of fun in store for children next weekend when not one but two fabulous kids’ shows are on offer.

Give the littlies a treat next Saturday with Blunderbus Theatre Company’s production of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark at the Watford Palace Theatre.

Based on the children’s classic book by Jill Tomlinson, this funny, gentle and reassuring tale is written especially for small people aged between three and seven.

With an irresistible blend of live music, puppetry and storytelling, big people will enjoy the show too.

Join baby barn owl Plop as he journeys into a night-time world of campfires, fireworks, starry nights and moonlit adventures at the Watford Palace Theatre on Saturday, February 4, 11.30am and 2.30pm.

Next Sunday youngsters and their grown-ups will love Backhand Theatre’s production of Marjorie Williams’ timeless classic The Velveteen Rabbit showing at the Trestle Arts Base in St Albans.

This delightful production will be at the Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans on Sunday, February 5 at 2.30pm.
