    The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps

    Murray Lachlan Young will be bringing his hilarious family theatre show and Virtual Reality experience, The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps, to the Borough Theatre in Abergavenny this weekend.

    The celebrated writer, broadcaster and BBC 6 Music ‘Poet in Residence’ kicked-off the tour at the historic Wilton’s Music Hall in London last month. Since then, the show has been visiting venues across the UK. Abergavenny audiences can see the show at the Borough Theatre on Saturday 9th November at 7pm.

    The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps is a theatrical treat perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Lemony Snicket and The Brothers Grimm. Taking the form of a funny and wildly entertaining epic-poem, Lachlan Young uses music, inventive costume, quirky staging and the invaluable support of fellow performer Joe Allen to tell the spell-binding story of the show’s young hero, Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps.

    Location: Borough Theatre, Town Hall, Abergavenny, NP7 5HD

    Showtime: 7pm.
