We’re thrilled to be welcoming the Librarian Theatre to the Old Library for the first in their national tour of “Alice in the Cuckoo’s Nest”!

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, will tour libraries across the UK from November 2017, exploring the theme of psychosis in the world of Alice’s library.

Tickets are ON SALE NOW!

£7 for adults and £4 concessions. The event will include a cafe/bar with proceeds from all refreshments going towards the Old Library.


“‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’”


Librarian Theatre is a UK-based theatre company committed to supporting our libraries by creating innovative plays specifically tailored to perform among the bookshelves.

By pioneering outside the traditional stage environment and into local communities, we aim to unite and strengthen these two ever-struggling sectors; inspiring new audiences, and regenerating interest in libraries.

Children aged 8+ (accompanied by an adult) are very welcome; please note however that this is not a children’s show, and the production explores adult themes of mental health. The show lasts approximately one hour with no interval.
