They must elect leaders, write anthems, come up with rules and deal with all sorts of crises because running the world isn’t all fun, fun, fun – there’s stuff to be done as well.

This is a seated show and will take place this Christmas in the circus-style Spiegeltent – a spectacular round wooden structure from the Netherlands measuring 20 meters in diameter, lavishly decorated inside with mirrors, glass and velvet.

Tickets, Adult £11, Children £8.50 are available from the Piece Hall website.
