Youngsters in Wem can take a journey to 'ancient Cornwall, a land of myth and legend, giants and druids' in a special show next week.

Stones and Bones is a marvellous mix of history, archaeology and mystery and will be appearing at Wem Town Hall, and visitors to the event can find out all about archaeology and fossils, say hello to one of your stone-age ancestors, hear stories of giants and wizards, see a volcano erupting before your very eyes, and maybe even glimpse a dinosaur or two.

Emma Bedford, marketing and events assistant at Wem Town Hall, said: “This is a brilliant show for all the family.

"It’s original, funny and a huge amount of fun for big and small kids alike. An absolute must-see for all dinosaur lovers.

"There will be thrills and spills galore, but also lots of laughs, plenty of puppets, songs, slapstick, tall tales and crazy characters – all presented in that unique Squashbox style.

"Squashbox Theatre aims to create shows that are funny, friendly, surprising, inspiring, unusual, informative (and a little bit mischievous).

"They use traditional puppetry and storytelling skills in an exciting and innovative way."

Stones and Bones is on Friday, September 21 at 4pm.

Meanwhile, Wem Town Hall will be also hosting 'Confessions of a Red Head' on October 4

It covers the story of anthropology graduate Joanie Little, stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her 'underemployment'

So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’.

Created by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a storm that you won’t want to miss.

Emma added: “This is the perfect show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

"Perry creates a brilliant show full of hilarity, jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns and even a bit of romance.”

Tickets for Stones and Bones are adults £7 and children £5. Family ticket (two adults and three children) £25.
