Sheep Ahoy! (On Grassier Tides) (Phil The Shepherd / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Storytelling Phil the Shepherd can’t get his flock to sleep, so he tries a variety of tales, songs, animations and even a cartoon he draws live to try and help. He involves the audience and manages to raise a few laughs from parents too, but his stories are a bit silly, and the kids at the back of room lost attention pretty quickly, yelping and building a fortress out of their parents’ chairs. The show is fun, his illustrations are cute, and he is an enthusiastic performer; if you’re planning on going, get there early and make sure you get a seat at the front, otherwise your kids might get distracted and set fire to the stage.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 4 – 29 Aug (not 10, 17), 2.45 pm (3.45 pm), free, fpp28.
