The Devil With The Three Golden Hairs (story 5 of 6) Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales for ages 8 - 12
The Unicorn Theatre, the UK's leading theatre for young audiences, is thrilled to present a deliciously gruesome series of six theatrical readings from Philip Pullman's Grimm Tales, re-told for the whole family by an extraordinary cast.
Adapted by Philip Pullman (His Dark Materials), these classic fairy tales, distilled from centuries of storytelling, are timeworn but honed for the next generation to discover anew.
Filmed at the Unicorn and aimed at ages 8 - 12 (School Years 4 - 7), these short, vivid new readings are available for free, from 10am on 5 October 2020 until 21 February 2021.

There will also be a free online CPD session for teachers on 8 October to go through the pack and ways to the activities in the classroom.
