The Anarchist’s Mobile Library

8 August 2021

‘The Anarchist’s Mobile Library’ will take you on an incredible adventure that YOU choose, solving problems and meeting characters, all in a retro, pop-up caravan!

With six different worlds to explore, where will you choose to journey to? Perhaps an intergalactic space adventure? Or a deep-sea swim, meeting creatures that lurk in the depths? Or even an abandoned witch’s kitchen, with the cauldron bubbling away?

Tessa Bide Productions have created a show to empower children to be masters of their own destinies, to be inspired by literature and to change the stories they see unfolding around them.

  • This a FREE Event
  • The target audience is 5-10, but it’s suitable for some younger children.
  • For parents of younger children: There are some loud noises and moments of darkness… but nothing too scary!
  •  If there must be an upper limit, we say 11 but the material works well with older audiences too due to its universal nature.
  • The show runs for 15 minutes with no interval
  • We have supporting materials for children with ASD – timelines and social stories

Location: Roman Town House, County Hall, Colliton Park, Dorchester DT1 1XJ
