£9 FULL / £7 CONC

Due to Covid-19 we our temporarily closed and this event has been rescheduled to 21 Feb 2021.  We are currently in the process of contacting all customers regarding refunds/exchanges.


Jackson's dad is building a new house out of weird and whacky bits and bobs thrown away by the local builder. The last few years have been hard for young Jackson, living without his mum. Now his dad wants to make a new start, but Jackson isn't ready to move on. Not until he blows the dust off mum's favourite old book and conjures up the Story Fairy. But can stories really help Jackson believe in himself and be happy in a new home?

Celebrating books and the joy of reading, The House That Jackson Built is a magical spoken word theatre show about the power of imagination, family, memory - and recycling!

The House That Jackson Built is Justin Coe's brand new spoken word show for children, following the highly popular Young Herbert’s Horrors and Big Wow, Small Wonder.


"A one-man show packed with poetry, jokes and a real feast for the imagination - we had a great family outing courtesy of Herbert!"
Kidadl about Young Herbert’s Horrors

“Bravo! Fabulous, funny and the children were mesmerised.” Audience Member, on Young Herbert’s Horrors

“Poetry, storytelling, and sheer charm emanating from the personal magic of Justin himself.” Brighton Festival Fringe about Big Wow, Small Wonder
