We’re setting sail to travel across the seas (well…across Havant Borough at least…) this autumn to bring you another fantastic family show. This year's tale is about wannabe pirate Young Herbert. So, get your swashbuckling boots on and head down to a library near you to hear about his antics.

Young Herbert is a little horror. Living on a boat should be the ideal life for a wannabe pirate, but the boat’s grounded until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin, eat his greens and be more polite. A big storm brews up when Herbert is sent home from school and Mum calls on Great Uncle Albatross to warn him of the dangers of rebellion. But who is Great Uncle Albatross and do his cautionary tales really have the power to make Young Herbert behave? Or will they just give Young Herbert the horrors?

Featuring swashbuckling verse, jaunty music, gallows humour and the obligatory parrot, Young Herbert’s Horrors is Justin Coe’s brand new spoken word show for children.

Recommended for ages 4 – 9

Pay what you decide: book your tickets in advance, for no up-front cost, and then decide what you think the show is worth after you’ve seen it. Young Herbert’s Horrors is part of The Spring’s Beyond the Walls programme, that sees us take arts events and activities to audiences across the borough.
