Uncle Pete and the Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep

Church Hall
In person event
Sun 26 Sep
14:00 UK

Ages 6-8

No matter what his parents try - bedtime stories, songs, milky drinks - Harry just cannot sleep. In fact, the young boy has never slept a wink in his entire life. An unexpected visit from Harry’s eccentric uncle, Pete, changes everything. Uncle Pete and his tiny mouse companion set out on a magical and hilarious adventure in a rickety old biplane to find a very special sheep!
