Enid Blyton – Noddy, Big-Ears & Lashings of Controversy

April 25 @ 19:30 to 21:10

Enid Blyton at Palace Theatre

As part of the Play on Words Festival 2024 programme (formerly English Riviera Literature Festival)

Everybody of a certain age has read an Enid Blyton book. She was loved by children but vilified by the BBC, teachers, critics and librarians. She sold more than 600 million books, despite being banned by the BBC, libraries and schools. She was accused of many things including being a racist.  Her love-life was interesting and she had numerous affairs including with her children’s nanny. She died of Alzheimer’s in 1968 aged 71, mourned by millions of readers. Liz Grand (previous shows ‘The Second Best Bed’, ‘Where Is Mrs. Christie?’ and ‘Mrs. Churchill – My life With Winston’) plays this remarkable and controversial woman and brings you her story.

Thursday 25 April 7.30pm | Tickets £17, Friends of the Palace concessions available
