This festive season, The Beverley Folk Festival is proud to present Michael Morpurgo and The Best Christmas Present in the world – making its first ever appearance in East Yorkshire!
Directed by Simon Reade, this wonderful show consists of a reading by Michael Morpurgo, an admired author who has written over 100 books, best known for major award-winning play and film in the USA – “Warhorse”. Virginia McKenna, an acclaimed star of stage and screen, will join Michael for the unique reading of his book The Best Christmas Present in the World.
The story will take you on a heart-warming journey of love and loss, after a letter is found by chance, almost a century after the famous 1914 Christmas Truce and Anglo-German football match. Michael Morpurgo tells the tale of one soldier’s experience of the Great War and brings it to life after coming across “Jim’s Last Letter: to be buried with me when the time comes”, and so begins the search to find Jim’s “Dearest Connie”.
Accompanied by the compelling six-piece acapella singing group, Voices At The Door, Christmas carols from Britain, France and Flanders will bring this spine-tingling tale to life – beauifully sung by Coope, Boyes and Simpson, Fi Fraser, Jo Freya and Georgina Boyes (shown below).
Tickets for this event are just £16 for adults, £12 under-16 (8 - 16’s) and children under 7 attend completely free!
