Flying carpet invite for children
To celebrate the opening of its Christmas show Arabian Nights, Manchester’s Library Theatre has launched a storytelling competition for children aged 7-11.
In the story, Es–Sindibad the Sailor says that on his travels he exchanged some of his diamonds for a flying carpet. But if you had a flying carpet where would you go? Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen? Ancient Egypt to see the pyramids? Or even into outer space to fly amongst the stars?
Write a short story about your magical journey in no more than 300 words and decorate it with a drawing of you and your flying carpet. Then submit it to the Library Theatre on A4-sized paper with your name, age, address and contact telephone number on the back.
The winner will be picked by director Amy Leach and the story will be published on the Library web site and printed in the Arabian Nights programme.
Not only that but the winner will also receive a family ticket for the show (worth £54) including a free signed programme and a chance to meet the cast.
Entries need to be sent by post to Alex Bond at Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 5NH. The closing date is Monday November 12 but entries cannot be guaranteed to be returned.
