Alby The Penguin Saves The World

Written and Directed by Helen Eastman

Reading’s favourite penguin returns! 

Alby the Penguin Saves the World in a magical and meaningful adventure, for kids aged 3-8.

Wherever Alby goes, adventure is not far behind, and he quickly finds himself on a mission to help save his friends (and the world), before it’s too late!

A return after the sell-out success of Alby the Penguin Saves Christmas, in partnership with Reading Libraries.
