Billy the Kid @ Unicorn Theatre (24 September to 30 October)

billy-the-kid-theatreThis autumn, the Unicorn Theatre is bringing back its popular show, Billy the Kid, Michael Morpurgo’s story of a champion Chelsea footballer during the Second World War.

The story follows the life of Billy, an elderly man who lives with Sam’s parents but spends his days on the park bench.

Billy tells Sam about his past, his passion for football when he was a boy, and how he came to play for Chelsea. He recalls his memories from the War, when his life was turned upside-down.

This show is a heart-warming story of football, war and dreams for children aged 8+ and their families.

Plus, on Sunday 16th October, after the 1.30pm performance, you can meet Michael Morpurgo in person! He’ll be answering your questions at a Meet the Author Q&A session.
