Rosemary Leach stars in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Noel Streatfeild's children's classic.


These audio editions, especially dramatised for BBC Radio, are of timeless stories that have enchanted generations of readers both young and old. The wonder and excitement of these much-loved tales live on in these acclaimed full-cast dramatisations, complete with evocative music and sound effects.

When Sylvia and her old nurse Nana agree to keep house for Great-Uncle Matthew (or Gum, as Sylvia calls him), they know they will be looking after his fossil collection while he's away on his travels. But imagine their surprise when one day Gum brings them something completely different to look after ~ a baby! And then another.

And another

The three live happily with Sylvia and Nana until one day Sylvia realises that the money Gum left to take care of them has all gone. What are they to live on? Taking in boarders is the first step, but how can she afford to send the children to school? And that's when lodger Theo comes up with her great idea - Pauline, Petrova and Posy are to become pupils at the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training, Now the adventures really begin!

Ballet Shoes is a classic of 20th-century children's literature. The lively humour and sense of fun that have made the novel such a perennial favourite are brought vividly to life in this enchanting BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.
