The Iron Man Libraries Tour

Presented by Graeae and The Spark Arts for Children

Ted Hughes’ classic modern-day fable of a giant Iron robot and the fearless courage of a young boy named Hogarth is a beautiful tale about friendship, understanding and tolerance.

Featuring captivating puppetry and playful storytelling this production also integrates British Sign Language and audio description into every performance.

This production follows on from the 2018 sell-out tour of WW1 play ‘The First’.
