I Believe in Unicorns

Saturday 15th Jul 2023, Corn Exchange Auditorium

Full Price £16 (including booking fee) / Concessions Price £11 (schools tickets)

  • An image of the Unicorn Lady played by Danyah Miller holding an illuminated magical book with a house on it, I Believe In Unicorns comes to Corn Exchange Newbury

Unfortunately the 6pm performance on Friday 14 July and the 11am performance on Saturday 15 July will not be going ahead. The Box Office team will be in touch with those who had booked tickets and we apologise for any disappointment.

Award-winning storyteller Danyah Miller brings Michael Morpurgo’s enchanting story to life in an 'utterly magical show' (The Stage).

This intimate show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady in his local library...

An enchanting and interactive production, I Believe in Unicorns, which won an Argus Angel Award for Artistic Excellence at Brighton Festival, sparks imagination in both young and old. We challenge you not to believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’ spellbinding journey.

Suitable for families with children aged 6 plus and anyone who loves stories and books.

'Danyah’s performance is a tour de force. The show is moving and memorable, a glorious example of the magic of storytelling. I didn’t like it, I loved it!' - Michael Morpurgo

To encourage the sharing of stories, the company will also be running a book swap after the show, so please bring a pre-loved, age appropriate book to swap if you would like to join in.

Come along to our pre-show craft workshop where you can make a magical bookmark to take home with you!
