The story of a boy and a modern master who created some of the 20th century’s great works of art is told in The Boy Who Bit Picasso.

Described as a fun family show, it will be performed at Palgrave Community Centre later this month.

A Diss Corn Hall on Tour presentation and inspired by Antony Penrose’s book, the Untied Artists’ show follows the true story of a boy called Tony who spent his childhood with Pablo Picasso, one of the greatest artists who ever lived.

It is an interactive show and audiences are invited to take part in a variety of hands-on art and craft activities, aimed at everyone from four years upwards.

There will also be storytelling and music designed to introduce children to one of the most influential modern artists.

The show was devised by Jake Oldershaw, co-founder of Birmingham-based Untied Artists, who also directs, and there are two performances on February 20, at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Tickets are £6, children £4; ring (01379) 652241 to book or go to www.disscornhall.co.uk
