Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds line-up for February half-term 2024 includes Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book by Julia Donaldson and the story of the Three Little Pigs

This February half-term little readers are in for a treat at a Suffolk theatre, which is running a book swap and showcasing some classic stories.

The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds will kick off its half-term schedule with Julia Donaldson favourite: Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book.

Later in the week children will get the chance to enjoy the classic tale of the Three Little Pigs, with a bit of a modern twist.

The book swap will run throughout the half-term week at the theatre’s box office.

Children and young people will be able to bring in a book they no longer want and exchange it for another, or simply just take a book to enjoy.

On Thursday, the venue will host a quiz night for those aged between 11 – 18.
