‘THE KEY MASTER’ a Junior AliCaT Production
“Oh no! Not another supply teacher!” say the children. But their lesson is far from boring, as their history teacher transforms into the quirky Keymaster and takes them on a colourful journey through time. When they finally get the key to the future, they are alarmed. They see for themselves that today is tomorrow’s history, and realise that things need to change!

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School presents:
The Canterbury Tales
Thursday 30th May – Saturday 1st June 2019 – 7.30pm (Sat Mat 2.30pm)
A colourful cast of characters set off for Canterbury, competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully alive by students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.
The Canterbury Tales is a touchstone of English literature and has delighted readers for centuries.
Tickets are £15 (£10 Concessions), available from bristololdvic.org.uk/ or 0117 987 7877

We’re Going on a Ghost Hunt by Marcia Vaughan
Incy Wincy Spider by Keith Chapman & Jack Tickle
Whatever Next by Jill Murphy
“Scaredy-Cat, Splat!” by Rob Scotton (bestselling author of SPLAT THE CAT, LOVE SPLAT, AND MERRY CHRISTMAS, SPLAT!)
It’s Halloween and Splat is determined to be the scariest cat in the class. Unfortunately he’s just too much of a scaredy-cat. He’s afraid of a little spider, and everyone says his costume looks more silly than scary. But when the lights go back on after a ghost story in the dark, the entire class is scared silly by a small, black, furry creature with a big pumpkin head…who can it be?
