Something to do over half term? 1001 nights.

Extra 1001Nights

With half term upon us, you might be trying to fill up the diary with activities.  I already mentioned the Queens Knickers for very young ones.  For slightly older children (6+) you might get tickets to 1001 Nights at the Unicorn.

‘an utter delight
4 STARS, The Telegraph

‘1001 Nights is an enjoyable piece which celebrates, among other things, the power of stories, family and friendship.‘  4 STARS, WhatsOnStage

From the Unicorn: “What do the old stories mean to us today?   Using everyday objects that you might find in your bedroom, the bookish Shahrazad transports her friend and father night after night to an imagined world of kings, viziers, and jinns. After three years of fantastical flights, her stories help them to make sense of the world they live, here in London.  Douglas Rintoul directs this modern adaptation of the classic Persian and Arabian stories for younger audiences.”


If you’d rather stay home and read the book with your children you can get volume one and two on amazon. The Arabian Nights: Tales of 1,001 Nights: Volume 1 (Penguin Classics), The Arabian Nights: Tales of 1,001 Nights: Volume 2 (Penguin Classics)
