Join Julia Donaldson and friends (including the Gruffalo!) in Blair Drummond Safari Park in Stirling, for an hour of entertainment and a day surrounded by stunning wild .
Julia will be acting out her stories and singing her songs, and the show will include a World Premiere preview of her new book with Axel, “The Ugly Five” which was inspired by a safari in South Africa where she saw the ‘big five’ animals – lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalos. However, she was more interested in 'the ugly five’ - the wildebeest, warthog, hyena, lappet-faced vulture and marabou stork - and wrote a story about these animals ‘reclaiming’ their uniqueness.
“Who's that singing on the savannah? It's the top-five ugly animals in Africa! The wildebeest, warthog, vulture, hyena and marabou stork swagger proudly across the savannah, rejoicing in their ugliness - and delighting their babies, who think they're perfect just the way they are.
Inspired by the real-life Ugly Five safari animals, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's brand-new picture book is a jubilant celebration of animals who are often rather unloved.”
After the shows there will be book sales and signings.
Please support this gala event including a special performance by jazz legend, Carol Kidd, and an exclusive auction of work by talented and well-recognised artists, as well as an arts sale of original work, jewellery and craft. Wine and a light supper are included. Join us at the Bridge of Allan Parish Church Halls for a night of music, art and celebration where 'Every Picture Tells a Story.' 6.30pm on the 22nd April.
