Football Freddie goes on community tour! Catch it at the Hawksworth Wood Older People Support (HOPS) in Kirkstall.

A warm and witty new show for children and their grown-ups about football, teamwork and the joy of joining in.

Football Freddie tells the story of Freddie Farren, a little girl who loves football but is too nervous to join in a game in her local park. Out of a magical photograph steps Freddie’s Great-Great-Great Uncle Fred, a real footballer from the olden days. Uncle Fred takes Freddie back in time and they re-live footballing glories of old. With Uncle-Fred’s encouragement, Freddie renews her confidence and enthusiasm, and everyone joins in a good old-fashioned kick around.

Developed with the support of Furnace – Leeds Playhouse’s artistic development engine. Presented by Fidget Theatre.
