Concerteenies Half-Term Concert

Monday 25 October at 10.30 in the children’s library

Join us for a Concerteenies musical story with professional musicians Polly Ives (narrator) and Louise Thomson especially for 0-7 year olds.
They will perform a new musical version of the book ‘Mixed’ based on the original book written and illustrated by Arree Chung and published by Macmillan Publishing Group. The music is composed by Paul Rissmann as part of a new commissions project by Concerteenies thanks to an Arts Council England grant in 2021. You can buy the book and explore the full resources at home and at school here:

The reds, the yellows, and the blues all think they’re the best in this vibrant, thought-provoking picture book from Arree Chung, with a message of acceptance and unity.

In the beginning, there were three colours… Reds, Yellows and Blues. All special in their own ways, all living in harmony–until one day, a Red says Reds are the best! and starts a color kerfuffle. When the colors decide to separate, is there anything that can change their minds? A Yellow, a Blue, and a never-before-seen color might just save the day in this inspiring book about color, tolerance, and embracing differences.

We are offering this free of charge but we’ll be limiting numbers and advance booking is essential. Visit our booking page here.
