About the event

Kissing Linford Christie is a new solo show written and performed by Victoria Beesley for children aged 8+, and their families and friends.

Inspired by Victoria’s own childhood obsession with athletics, this is a story about loving failure and dreaming big – even if there’s no chance you’ll make that dream come true.

“When I was 8 years old I was starting to confidently make my own decisions about who I was and what I liked. This was a hugely formative moment of life. Right now it seems that there is increasing pressure on young people to succeed, and a growing belief that if you don’t succeed at something it’s because you’ve not been trying hard enough. I want to create a show that is about enjoying something just for the sake of enjoying it, about taking away the pressure to succeed and allowing yourself to be immersed in the pure, pure joy of loving something even if you’re not very good at it.”
