More from Brave Bold Drama SKU: AlfCD Category:


Alf the Highwayman is an award-winning family theatre show by Brave Bold Drama, a Bristol-based theatre and community arts company. The story and music are all entirely original. Alf the Highwayman was devised in 2016, and has been touring ever since to schools, libraries, venues, fringe and folk festivals.

The show tells the tale of Alf, who has an eye for other people’s possessions. Especially belongings of sentimental value. He snatches and grabs without a thought for other people’s feelings. ​But it’s time for him to change tack and learn that there are better ways to play!

There is original music throughout the show, including many catchy songs. This CD includes all the music from the show, composed by Gill Simmons and performed by Paul Lawless and Gill Simmons. There are 18 tracks in all, including bonus ‘backing tracks’ which mean your child can learn the songs and sing-along.

“An exceptional show.” (Vault Festival, London)
“A beautifully written and performed piece of children’s theatre.” (Exploring Exeter)
