Our STORY BOX sessions see children put together outfits from our dressing-up trunks and with our help invent characters for themselves. Their input then drives the narrative of living stories, instantly invented and spell-bindingly told by our storyteller!
You could find us running a Mad Hatters tea party at Bevendean Family Festival; whispering Hallow’een ghost stories at Chomp Club, the holiday project providing free lunches to families in need; teaming up with Brighton and Hove Libraries to set up quests linked to the National Summer Reading Challenge.
These interactive sessions invite children to stretch their imaginations and be active in their play, living out real and invented role models through dress-up and shared storymaking.
“It’s an escapism for some who have quite difficult lives to be able to play in that way, a space for them to dream and hope”
Helen Jones, Trust For Developing Communities, Mouslecoomb and Bevendean
