Thousands go on bear hunt

The final performance of We?re Going On A Bear Hunt took place last week, concludinga run of 30 shows across the Christmas and New Year period. Over 17,000 intrepidadventurers attended the performances which recreated the imaginary world ofMichael Rosen?s much loved book with a mixture of catchy songs, interactive scenesand plenty of hands-on adventure.

Among them were 1000 schoolchildren and 150 family members – from Ladywood – who were invited to see the production free of charge thanks to the generosity of a Ladywood resident as part of our Education department’s
Concerts2Kerbstones project.

We received the following letter from Lily, age 6, who won tickets to see the show through Worcestershire County Council Libraries and Learning. Lily described her experience:

?I went with my mum and dad to Birmingham town hall to see a show called We’re GoingOn A Bear Hunt. I was lucky enough to win tickets in a colouring competition. We havethe book at school so I did know the story. I enjoyed the show. We sat down the frontso got quite involved and rather wet. I liked getting wet. My favourite bit was whenthe Bear came on. We enjoyed joining in the singing. It was a very enjoyable outingand we were lucky to go.?

If, like Lily, you enjoyed going on a bear hunt, how would you like to go to tea with a tiger? In April Town Hall welcomes another very special guest, The Tiger Who Came To Tea. More details about this magical adventure can be found here
