The Anarchist's Mobile Library

Tessa Bide ProductionsThis event has now finished

Exclusively available ONLINE to Artsreach audiences between the 7-13 September

The Anarchist's Mobile Library will take you on an incredible online audio adventure that YOU choose, solving problems and meeting characters, from anywhere you choose to play!

With many different worlds to explore, where will your adventure take you? Perhaps an intergalactic space adventure? Or a deep-sea swim, meeting creatures that lurk in the depths? Or even an abandoned witch's kitchen, with the cauldron bubbling away?

Tessa Bide Productions have created an interactive audio adventure to empower children to be masters of their own destinies, to be inspired by literature and to change the stories they see unfolding around them.

Supported by Arts Council England, The Anarchist's Mobile Library can be played on any internet device. As they listen, the audience plays the role of the creator, choosing the story they would like to explore and how they would like it to end.

With bold animations, narration, and a beautifully created soundscape, The Anarchist's Mobile Library is accessible to all those with the internet, although we also encourage the listener to put down their screens and let their imaginations paint the visuals!

Suitable for ages 6-10
