WIN! Tickets to see a brilliant kids play

KIDS and grown ups will have a hoot at Trinity Arts Centre when Blunderbus present The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark.

The show comes to Gainsborough on Tuesday 10th April at 2pm and YOUR Standard has tickets to give away.

Plop was a baby Barn Owl. He lived at the top of a tall tree, in a field.

He was fat and fluffy. He had big round eyes. He had very knackety knees.

Plop was exactly the same as every barn owl that has ever been - except for one thing. He was afraid of the dark.

Based on the classic children’s book by Jill Tomlinson, this funny, gentle and reassuring tale is written especially for small people aged three to seven - and grown ups who sleep with the big light on.

With an irresistible blend of live music, puppetry and storytelling, this beautiful new show introduces an old friend to a new generation of theatre goers.

Join Plop the baby barn owl as he journeys into the night time world of camp fires, fireworks, starry nights and moonlit adventures.

Tickets for the show are £5 and are available from Trinity Arts Centre box office on 01427 676655 or online at
