“Stripey Honey… is very yummy!”

Stripey Honey… is very yummy! is a touching and funny adventure into India, exploring the lives of some of our most precious but endangered species, who unite to save their homes. Journey into the forests of the Sundarbans, the land between India and Bangladesh, home of the Royal Bengal Tigers and Honey Bees to discover how the tigers, bees, and honey collectors learn to live, play and survive together.

As well as being a lively and entertaining show, this is an opportunity for children aged 5+ to learn about other cultures and the environment in a fun and engaging way. Plus the show is happening in the library so a great chance to encourage the children to read a book or two during the holidays and there are opportunities to do crafting activities and games before the show.

The shows are taking place at:

  • Accrington Library on Monday 18 February at 2pm.
  • Burnley Library on Wednesday 6th March at 4.30pm.
  • Haslingden Library on Thursday 7th March at 4pm.

Tickets are £4 each or £10 for one adult and 2 children. Tickets are available directly from each library, booking online via http://spotonlancashire.co.uk/whats-on/stripey-honey-is-very-yummy/ or by calling 01254 660360.
