Pre-Show Talk

Ustinov Room - Tickets: £3


David Almond is one of the world’s most prestigious children’s authors with numerous awards to his name. His first novel Skellig won the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year Award and the Carnegie Medal. His much-loved book has since been translated into over 40 languages and made into an opera and a film. In 2003, David adapted Skellig for the stage and we’re delighted to bring you this brand new production at Nottingham Playhouse.

This pre-show event is your chance to hear David Almond himself reading an excerpt from the novel. Following this is a Q&A session where David will answer questions from the audience, hosted by one of our Amplify Creative Associates Siobhán Cannon-Brownlie, founder and Artistic Director of theatre group Major Labia.

This is a pre-show event taking place in the Ustinov Room from 3.45pm – 4.30pm ahead of the evening performance of Skellig which begins at 5pm in the Theatre. Tickets for the pre-show event are £3 and advance booking is recommended.

Standard ticket pricing applies for the evening performance of Skellig. See the Skellig show page for details on pricing and how to book.
