A free children’s play is touring Gloucestershire libraries and venues this summer

The Everyman Theatre’s latest children’s production will be visiting libraries and outdoor venues across Gloucestershire this July 2021 – and families are invited to see the show for free!

A new children’s play is coming to venues and libraries across Gloucestershire, providing entertainment for young families this July 2021. And best of all, it’s totally free!

Aimed at primary school children aged four to 11, the production from the Everyman Theatre is part of the 2021 Summer Reading Challenge, which encourages kids to get into reading during the school holidays by visiting their local libraries and completing challenges.

Inspired by this year’s theme ‘Wild World Heroes’, Zeb and Cat Save the World explores environmental and wildlife issues in a light-hearted, entertaining and accessible way.

As Zeb and Cat discover that litter is ruining their local park and putting wildlife at risk, they embark on a mission to save the animals – with audiences invited to join them along the way.

Heading to outdoor venues across Gloucestershire, families can see Zeb and Cat Save the World on Monday 26 July at Robinswood Hill Country Park; and at Cheltenham’s Skillicorne Gardens and St. Barnabas Church on Tuesday 27 July 2021.

It’s free and there’s no need to book, unless you plan on seeing the show at Skillicorne Gardens, where guests are required to email customer.contact@cheltenhamtrust.org.uk to book a place.

Families will also be able to watch the show online via the Everyman’s website by the end of July 2021. Plus, local charity Read for Good has produced some free drama workshops to accompany the event to keep the kids engaged!

What’s more, the characters and puppets from the play will be paying a visit to libraries across Gloucestershire too, giving local kids the chance to meet Zeb and Cat as well as join in with fun outdoor activities.

Expect to find them at Stroud Library and Churchdown Library on Wednesday 28 July; Prestbury Library and Quedgeley Library on Thursday 29 July; and Lydney Library and Newent Library on Friday 30 July 2021.

Spaces to meet the characters are free but limited, so families must book online via the library catalogue events page or contact their local library directly.
