University of Worcester's Beeline Festival to Welcome Comedy Duo Knife and Packer

The famous authors of the much loved CITV kids’ television series Fleabag Monkeyface will be entertaining children with their ‘gross out’ humour at The Hive on Monday 21 October at 6.30pm.

Duncan McCoshan (Knife) and Jem Packer have collaborated together on over 20 books and created the hit animated ITV series. The duo will be providing a fun-filled talk for their fans, drawing characters from their books and giving practical tips to budding cartoonists.

Those wishing to attend can purchase tickets for £5.50 from The Hive and Worcester Live.

This fun session for children is part of a month-long series of storytelling events at The Hive that are open to the public and part of the University of Worcester’s Beeline Storytelling Festival.

Designed to encourage a love of books and reading, the Beeline Festival is now in its eighth year and continues to grow in popularity with thousands of children from Herefordshire and Worcestershire attending events across the counties.

The action-packed programme of public events that are taking place at The Hive are designed to appeal to children of all ages. Spectators can expect to see a rich variety of illustrators, storytellers, famous authors, puppeteers and performers.
