This August, Chichester Festival Youth Theatre is performing Pullman’s retelling of Brothers Grimm tales. The performance has been adapted by Philip Wilson and is directed by Dale Rooks.
It will be performed at the Cass Sculpture Foundation on the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, England from 4th to 19th August 2017. Tickets start at £25 and can be bought here.
Following the Grenfell Tower fire in London, in which over 80 people lost their lives, Pullman joined other authors and celebrities in a charity auction to raise money for the affected residents.
For his lot, Pullman offered to name a character in Volume 2 of The Book of Dust, and this raised £32,400 after James Clements, a teacher of a pupil who died in the fire, suggested the character should be named in memory of his former pupil: Nur Huda el-Wahabi.
