Alfie's First Fight - Urmston Library


A funny and heart-warming family show, guaranteed to pack a punch.

About this Event

If you liked Roald Dahl's Danny Champion of the World, the books of Jacqueline Wilson and the Rocky Movies, then you'll love this 'edge-of-your-seat storytelling' (Manchester Libraries).

Inspired by Oliver's own experiences growing up without a mum and being coached as an amateur boxer by his dad, the show centres itself around shy twelve-year-old Alfie, as he decides to go in search of his missing older brother, Jacob, when he disappears moments before an all-important boxing match...

On the surface, it's a simple adventure story. But it's also about love, loss, family and learning how to fight for what you want.

55 minutes, no interval.

Age recommendation: 5+
