Alan Brough with Charlie and the Karaoke Cockroaches: Ballarat


Event Status

What are the ingredients for a rollicking adventure? Could it be … one bumbling burglar, two best friends, and three singing cockroaches? That’s the recipe favoured by Alan Brough: broadcaster, comedian, music nerd – and author of the upcoming children’s book Charlie and the Karaoke Cockroaches.

The last time we heard from our hero – in Charlie and the War Against the Grannies – our brave protagonist was fighting sinister nannas in a bid to secure his neighbourhood paper round. Now he’s onto bigger things – like saving three innocent insects from the forces of evil.

At this Wheeler Kids session, join Brough as he shares another epic tale from the life of Charlie Duncan, sings some songs, and chats about what makes for a hilarious yarn. (Check your crooning cockroaches at the door for safekeeping.)

This event is perfect for children aged seven to twelve, but open to all ages.

Presented in partnership with the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka, Ballarat.
