Michael Morpurgo's Best Christmas Present in the World at Sage Gateshead

About

 

Join us as Michael Morpurgo – one of Britain’s most well known and best loved children’s authors – reads from his spellbinding book The Best Christmas Present in the World.

 

The former Children’s Laureate and author of War Horse revisits the trenches to tell the festive and true story of Christmas 1914 when soldiers on both sides put down their weapons and suspended hostilities in honour of Christmas Day.

Michael will be joined on stage by award winning actress Virginia McKenna and a choir singing carols in English, German, French and Flemish.

 

An unmissable and thoroughly festive festival highlight!

Supported by our friends at Seven Stories.
