THERE CAN’T be many people who don’t remember at least some of the old nursery rhyme There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.

Written as a song in 1953 it was a chart topping hit for singer and actor Burl Ives before being adapted into a book by Pam Adams a few years later..

This version which can be seen at The Riverfront, Newport on Friday June 8, has been developed by children’s author Steven Lee into a magical, musical stage show.

It boasts first class games and colourful animal characters.

Family tickets are available for £32 for the show which starts at 2.30pm Call the box office on 01633 656757.
