The Polar Express Storytelling Show

by Storystock
Sold out

Board Chris van Allsburg’s Polar Express and listen to the well-loved story of the little boy on Christmas Eve who takes a magical journey to the North Pole.

Storystock Circus of Stories brings you an immersive Christmas storytelling show that will get everyone’s Christmas bells ringing.

Come dressed in your pyjamas ready for a festive adventure filled with Christmas songs and games conjuring up ‘wolves and white-tailed rabbits’, ‘candies with nougat centres as white as snow’, ‘hot cocoa as thick and rich as melted chocolate bars’ and a chance to meet Father Christmas himself.

‘The bells still rings for me as it does for all who truly believe.’

In association with Andersen Press.


The Polar Express has been adapted for this storytelling session by Vicki Berwick.
Storystock – the travelling circus of stories produces shows, festivals and literary happenings for children and their families across the UK and beyond.
