Gothic Adventure With The Spark - A Thousand Slimy Things

The Spark Festival takes place between 29 May and 9 June at venues across Leicester. Over twelve terrific days the city will host hundreds of events for families including theatre, puppetry, dance, music plus visual and digital arts. As part of this year's Spark on Fri 31 May during half term and Sat 1 June, Curve hosts A Thousand Slimy Things – a gothic adventure for older children based on The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

A wedding, a party, a perfect day. What could possibly go wrong? Beware! The Ancient Mariner is here and will be heard! Listen to his tale of doom and destruction, that takes you deep down to the murky depths of your imagination. Will you dare to follow him? And if you do, will you ever be the same again? Coleridge's classic poem is transformed into a gothic adventure, awash with live music, songs and highly physical comedy by Tangere Arts. "The excellent Tangere Arts... a distinctive mix of storytelling, physical theatre, and live music" *** The Guardian

Perfect for brave souls over nine years old, A Thousand Slimy Things will be at Curve on Fri 31 May at 6.30pm and on Sat 1 June at 2.30pm and 6.30pm. Tickets cost £8. To book please visit or call 0116 242 3595.
