The UK's best-selling children's author Julia Donaldson and the uniquely talented illustrator Lydia Monks take you back to the farm for another fantastically funny farmyard caper, to find out exactly What the Ladybird Heard Next. With Julia's husband Malcolm on the guitar, this event is sure to be a sing-a-long storytelling sensation!

Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of some of the world's best-loved children's books, including modern classics The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo's Child, which together have sold over 17 million copies worldwide, and the hugely successful What the Ladybird Heard adventures. Julia also writes fiction, including the Princess Mirror-Belle books illustrated by Lydia Monks, as well as poems, plays and songs - and her brilliant live shows are always in demand. She was Children's Laureate 2011-13 and has been honoured with an MBE for Services to Literature. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between West Sussex and Edinburgh.
