BROTHER BERNARD'S BIG BOOK OF BRITISH BEDTIME BALLADS is an interactive, fun and silly educational storytelling experience for all ages, whether you're a so-called 'native' Briton or are new to the nation and keen to learn more about our beautiful, fascinating mythology. Author, performer and historian Jem Roberts has gained access to the mysterious Bernard's brilliant Big Book, and is on a quest to share more than 42 of the best fairytales in our island's mythology with the world! Not content with getting the book in shops around the world, Jem will also be performing the brightest and best of Brother Bernard's stories in schools, libraries and venues all around the country, in the guise of Brother Bernard himself. Each hour-long storytelling session will be tied in with a cartoon map of the country, giving kids a better idea of their place in the world, and the history of Britain, and children will be able to pick some of the stories themselves, sharing their own knowledge of their homes and the exciting places in the UK they've visited!
