Noddy, Big-Ears and Lashings of Controversy – the secret life of Enid Blyton

On a Role Company Sat 8 June | 7:30pm

Everybody of a certain age has read an Enid Blyton book. She was loved by children but vilified by the BBC, teachers, critics and librarians. Despite being banned for 30 years, she sold over 600 million books. She was accused of being a bigot and a racist, and her love-life was peppered with several affairs including one with her children’s nanny. She died of Alzheimer’s in 1968 aged 71, and was mourned by millions worldwide.

Liz Grand plays this remarkable and controversial woman and brings you her story.
