The Anarchist's Mobile Library
An online interactive make-your-own audio adventure for ages 6+
Following previous success with productions such as The Selfish Giant and Perfect (★★★★ The Guardian), Tessa Bide Productions returns with an audio-interactive experience about literature, activism and adventure, on whatever internet device you have!
The Anarchist’s Mobile Library will take you on an incredible audio adventure that YOU choose, solving problems and meeting characters, from wherever you choose to play! With many different worlds to explore, where will you choose to journey to? 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?
Register for free and the link will go live on at 9am on Monday 26 October until the 1st November inclusive.
Each adventure takes roughly 8 minutes to play, and you can keep dipping back in again and again to try different adventures and different endings! Play 3 in a row and you'll become a fully qualified Anarchist Librarian and be rewarded with a special surprise...!
Details of how to access the event are provided in the confirmation email and e-ticket.
When: 26 October - 1 November
Where: Online event
For ages 6+
