Celebrate the 75th birthday of Astrid Lindgren’s much-loved character

In celebration of the 75th birthday of Astrid Lindgren’s much-loved Pippi Longstocking, acclaimed storyteller Danyah Miller (I Believe in Unicorns) and award-winning director Helena Middleton (Pippi Longstocking – The Musical Adventure) have created a playful and quirky one-woman storytelling performance with audience participation to introduce children to 'the strongest girl in the world'. Find out how the self-sufficient, quick-witted and generous Pippi has inspired fans the world over, including Lauren Child, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga and Cerys Matthews, to name just a few! 

'I was really fascinated with this strong little girl that was the centre of everything, and she was almost magical in a way. She was stronger and tougher than anyone. She had super-human strength and I got a kick out of her.' Michelle Obama
