New Year, New Projects

Here’s wishing you a very happy new year. We are currently busy in the office planning and scheming fun adventures for this year and we hope you can join us on the way.

We are very excited to be working in partnership with the Macclesfield Museums and presenting a fun hour-long story-making adventure for families at West Park Museum. Join a confused and muddled Archaeologist and help him find the objects that create a magical story. For more information about this project make sure you follow our social media pages.

Schools Workshops

We are currently offering workshops in story making and shadow play. If you are a teacher, PTFA member or know someone who would like a Babbling Vagabonds workshop or want more information then please get in touch. Want longer than a days workshop? We have a great wealth of experience in delivering residencies too.

Summer Adventures Underway

With the success of “Here Be Dragons” last summer we are keen to share it with more families again this year. We are in cahoots with other communities and seeking further partnerships to help make this happen. Look out for more news nearer the time. If you know of a beautiful venue that we can transform then contact:

Thursday Throwback 

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.

This photo takes us back to 2005 where we undertook some pyrotechnic training with those wonderful creatives Vince, Sally and Jim from Soft Touch Arts
