PRIMARY school children visited local libraries to see a performance by Travelling Light theatre company.
The play, The Mysterious Vanishment of Pobby and Dingan, was created for children in Years 5 and 6 and explores some issues and life questions that young people ask about.
It is based on the debut novel by author Ben Rice about how one Australian boy's mission to save his family unites an outback opal-mining community.
Pupils from Staple Hill Primary School, Barley Close Community Primary School and Christ Church C of E Junior School watched the play and did follow-up work in their schools.
Libraries West used by Arts Council England funding to bring high quality theatre to places and people who might not otherwise have access to it .
