Storytelling Success At West Park Museum

We had a great half term at this beautiful museum in Macclesfield. The event was part storytelling and part shadow puppetry with a good dose of interactive family fun.
We had lots of positive feedback from this event and it was a delight to see the children mesmerised by the shadows and the wonder in their faces when their own shadow puppet found the light and the screen was truly heart-lifting. 

Thanks to everyone for making it a sell-out success. You’ve given us a warm happy glow.
“Wonderful event, fantastic storytelling and super activities for all ages. Thank you so much” Participant.

Here Be Dragons Back For The Summer

We’ve been working hard to find partners and venues who are up for having fun this summer. In the next few months, we’ll be able to confirm when and where you can come and play.

It’s not too late….If you know of a venue that we can transform then contact:

Celebrating 20 Years

This year we celebrate two decades of working together, so I thought I would celebrate our work by sharing a photo from the past twenty years every month. We feel blessed to have met so many wonderful people along the way and to have formed a great many friendships.

I’m taking us back to 2005-2007 which saw us touring a tabletop puppet show of “The Lonely Giant” to schools, communities and venues.
