Youngsters aged three to seven, along with their families, are invited to watch popular poet Justin Coe perform his new spoken word show for children.

Taking place on Saturday, March 10 at 10.30am, Young Herbert’s Horrors is about a young wannabe pirate Herbert Hawkins, whose Mum has his boat ‘grounded’ until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin.

A big storm brews up when Herbert refuses to go to school and his Great Uncle Albatross si called to warn him of the dangers of rebellion.

Cllr Peter Craske, cabinet member for environment and leisure, said: “Children and families get to enjoy Justin Coe’s free spine-tingling performance, plus pay a visit to our modern, friendly library as well.”

The performance is being put on as part of SPINE Festival, a family arts festival that takes place in libraries across London.
