Written and Performed by: Oliver Sykes

Award-winning Children’s Author, Oliver Sykes, is taking to the road in Spring-Summer 2023 with a funny and heart-warming debut show that packs a punch – for children (aged 5+) and their grown-ups.

Inspired by Oliver’s own experiences growing up without a mum and being coached as an amateur boxer by his dad, Alfie’s First Fight centres itself around shy twelve-year-old Alfie, as he decides to go in search of his missing older brother, Jacob, when he disappears moments before an all-important boxing match…
