About the show
Presented by Fidget Theatre
The story of a little girl,
With a big love of the beautiful game
And her Great-Great-Great Uncle,
Who shares the same name.
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.
Football Freddie is a magical new show for children and their families. The production features playful storytelling, friendly audience participation and integrated audio description alongside original sound design and vibrant set and costumes.
