Mix Up Theatre & Flapjack Press
Join Dommy B for a special event launching his new poetry adventure book for children over 5 – Best Adventure Ever!
Published by Flapjack Press and available now from your favourite bookshops.
Ten-year-old Dom knows the power of a wonderfully weird imagination. He knows all there is to know about goblins, zombies, ninjas, and the horror of too many mushy peas!
Whilst Dom is trying to adjust to moving home, an unexpected event suddenly changes everything. With his whole world turned upside down, how far will he go to be accepted at a new school where attitudes seem very different to anything he has seen before?
The story of Dommy B’s Best Adventure Ever! is filled with humour and memorable, magical rhymes. It is adapted from the author’s exciting poetry-theatre show for children ages 5 and over.
Dommy B (AKA Dominic Berry) is a Manchester-based performance poet, whose work has taken him across Europe, North and South America, Australasia and Asia. He is a winner of the UK’s Superheroes of Slam and New York’s famous Nuyorican Poets’ Café Slam, and a two-times winner of Sabotage Review’s Best Spoken Word Performer award. His poetry theatre shows have been a staple of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for nearly a decade and he regularly performs in schools, libraries and theatres throughout the UK. He has been the Glastonbury Festival poet-in-residence and his TV appearances include BBC’s Rhyme Rocket and Greg & Celia’s Festivals Highlights.
“An exceptional force in the poetry and spoken word scene.” John McGrath, Artistic Director National Theatre Wales
