A family performance touring libraries and community centres across Havant Borough as part of The Spring’s Beyond The Walls programme.

After the success of children’s performance poet Joseph Coelho’s last show Pop-Up Flashback in 2015, we decided to ask him to go out Beyond the Walls again with an enchanting new family show for both young and old alike!

Did you know that the ugly duckling was never ugly? He was truly monstrous! Or that Goldilocks was never a tale about a little girl. It was always a tale about a granny - a mean, thieving granny who has plans for something quite nasty.

Join Joseph as he unravels some of your favourite fairytales to create fresh contemporary classics and discover the true stories behind the happily ever afters. But be warned, they may not be quite as charming as you remember – these are fairytales gone bad!

After the show there will also be an exclusive chance to meet Joseph, talk about his work, and purchase signed copies of his books. 

Suitable for ages 3+

Beyond The Walls is our programme of events and opportunities across the Havant Borough. In addition to these four performances open to the public, we will also be holding private performances of Fairytales Gone Bad for children from local Havant schools.

Pay what you decide is a new scheme that The Spring is trying. Book your ticket in advance, for no upfront cost, and then decide what you think the show is worth after you have seen it. There will be a chance to pay at the end by cash, cheque or credit card.
