October 31st 2 -4pm: John Kirk - storyteller, will be at Fleetwood Library to deliver a session based on Terry Deary's War Games.
Best known for his Horrible Histories, Terry Deary has an exceptional ability to bring the past to life.
“Christmas? In a war Christmas Day is the same as any other day. But for once Charlie Embleton was wrong.” Albert Watson and Charlie Embleton thought that Christmas Day would be the same as any other in the trenches, but in 1914 soldiers from two countries put down their guns and play one of the most amazing football games of all time.
“The War Game” is presented with the permission of Terry Deary.
Suitable for children aged 7+. Please see the Library for a ticket.

Shakespeare Primary School was officially opened on 16 June 1934.
On Monday 16th June 2014 we celebrated 80 Glorious Years of our school by holding a Birthday service in the playground! We were joined by several ex pupils who were here when the school opened, and many ex-staff and Head Teachers.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Wyre, Councillor & Mrs Shewan joined Mr James Wright, our School Advisor and Mr Neil MacSymons, Chair of Governors in wishing the school a Happy Birthday and continued success.
The Choir sang On the Sunny Side of the Street and an old school favourite - I am a Small Part of the World and the School Band played a selection of pieces including The Shakey March No 1 - written by Mr John Lyne, our Brass Teacher.
The Head Boy & Girl from the current year 6 and the New Head Boy & Girl for next year read some memories of Shakespeare from ex pupils.
Mrs Lynne Atkinson, Chair of Friends of Shakespeare, presented the invited guests and all the children with a pin badge commemorating the schools 80th Birthday.
The oldest and youngest pupils from school were chosen to raise the new Shakespeare Flag.
Reverend Anne Jeffrey gave a Thanksgiving Prayer and the Ceremony finished with everyone joining in the hymn All things Bright and Beautiful.
The invited guests were given a tour of the school and visited an exhibition of photographs from the school archives. These included pictures from the original opening, staff photos from years gone by !, class photos from the 1960's and 1970's and Junior Summer Play and Infant Christmas Play programmes and photographs spanning almost 20 years.
