Marvellous Music & Revolting RhymesA one-hour theatrical workshop celebrating the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth, featuring “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Three Little Pigs” by Roald Dahl performed by the Magnard Wind Ensemble of London with narrator & piano. A chance for our youngest audience members to have fun joining in with the music and actions to these wonderful stories.

In 2016, people across the globe will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, one of the most significant literary figures of the twentieth century. His contribution to the fields of children’s literature, poetry and screenwriting are unparalleled, and his subversive, humorous and darkly clever tales continue to entertain and thrill children across the world.

 Join the Magnard Ensemble and narrator Rebecca Kenny as we explore his stories through the mediums of spoken word, theatre, and live music.

 The Magnard Ensemble have devised this project in partnership with composer Paul Patterson, approved by the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Marvellous Children’s Charity, and generously supported by the City Music Foundation.

Here’s a taster of “Three Little Pigs”
