4,000 Free Theatre Places In Hyde Park For London School Children

as part of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park

Today 5 June AEG Live and The Royal Parks announce 4,000 free theatre places for London primary school children as part of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. This initiative is part of the event’s commitment to accessibility for all and puts London’s local community at its heart.
The Barclaycard Unwind Theatre in the Piazza will host two productions daily of The Golden Cowpat and Superhero Snail Boy, both from the acclaimed Greenwich Theatre in conjunction with Tucked In and the Vertical Line Theatre. Running from Monday 8th July to Thursday 11th July both productions will stop off at Hyde Park for these special shows before transferring to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Golden Cowpat, a Tucked In production, is a laugh-out-loud interactive fairy-tale for children aged 3+, combining story telling, puppetry and original music in a charming tale about Hector the farmer, Betty the cantankerous cow and their adventure to find their fortunes in the big city. 
Receiving its premiere at Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, Superhero Snail Boy, produced by Vertical Line Theatre, is a new play for ages 8+ from up and coming writer Elizabeth Muncey. The play follows characters Inari and Tilly as they deal with some of the toughest moments of growing up, discover the joys of smashing plates and inherit a bit of wisdom from a wise old snail.
Places are free, but pre-booking is essential. Primary schools interested in taking part should apply via or reserve your place today by calling Greenwich Theatre on 020 8858 4447 
Throughout the 10-day event Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time will host a variety of events and activities aimed at children of all ages. Already announced as a part of A Day At The Park are JLS, The Saturdays, the Gruffalo, Horrible Histories and Brainiac.
