About the event

Award-winning storyteller Danyah Miller brings best-selling children’s author Michael Morpurgo’s treasured story to life.

This creative and intimate show will amaze audiences of all ages with its incredible set and story that is full of surprises. With stunning yet simple use of props and enchanting effects, lots of ‘wow’ moments and laughs along the way, this interactive experience will fly by as both younger and older audiences are blown away and inspired by the books that hold more than just stories within their pages.

It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady in his local library…

An enchanting and interactive production, I Believe in Unicorns, which won an Argus Angel Award for Artistic Excellence at Brighton Festival, sparks imagination in both young and old. We challenge you not to believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’ spellbinding journey.

‘Danyah’s performance is a tour de force. The show is moving and memorable, a glorious example of the magic of storytelling. I didn’t like it, I loved it!‘ Michael Morpurgo


‘I Believe in Unicorns’ also includes a ‘book swap’, for which audience members are invited to bring along a favourite children’s book (for ages 6 and upwards) to help form part of the stage set at the beginning of the show. At the end the children are invited to swap their book for another one and so have a new story ‘from the library’ to take home with them.
