London Mozart Players filled Central and New Addington Libraries with music and prose on Thursday (31 May), playing to packed-out audiences of children and parents with performances of “The Three Little Pigs”.
More than 200 big and little people attended the event at Central Library (pictured), and almost 150 at New Addington. Children were first asked to identify different musical instruments, before a musical narration of Roald Dahl’s classic.
“Croydon’s libraries are places of education, inspiration and inclusion. Now the borough’s libraries are being managed back in-house, we want to open them up to a whole new audience by holding events like these.”
Councillor Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport
The council’s libraries were brought back under direct management in January this year, after the previous operator, Carillion, went into administration.
