The Ugly Duckling by H C Andersen

Being part Danish, the beautiful fairy tales by H C Andersen have been a big part of my upbringing and in particular The Ugly Duckling has always been a firm favourite!

A tale about overcoming life's obstacles, defying bullies and personal transformation!

I had wanted to do an adaptation of this classic story for a long time , and when The Horniman Museum asked me to perform at the Easter Fair, it seemed the perfect fit.

I regularly do shows at The Horniman, which I love !

Beautiful surroundings and friendly staff- This Easter the lovely Amari helped on the door and was great company during the weekend,thank you !


It was so heart warming to have so many happy , smiley children and grown ups in the audience , and the very best thing was the grown ups joining in with the Quack Quack Walk,the kids love it when grown ups are silly !
