For the first time in Dubai, The Emirates Festival of Literature brings you a magical evening of readings and music featuring acclaimed children’s author Michael Morpurgo.
Based on Michael Morpurgo’s The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings.
Adapted by John Tams and sung by John Tams and Barry Coope, this concert is the closest of all the adaptations to the original book, in which the voice of the storyteller is Joey, the horse sold away to the army to go to the front in 1914.
