We've got big plans this year…

STORYSTOCK 2016

See events

STORYSTOCK, the travelling story circus for children 2-11yrs and their families, returns for another year of bookish fun and games this February half-term.

Instead of clowns we have storytellers, there’s no trapeze but plenty of live literature acts and the workshops involve writing, science & song-writing. This is all the fun of the circus with fewer animals…

Bookish acts will bring stories to life through live shows, storytelling, creative workshops, parties & story treasure hunt. Hosted by the fabulous Storymaster with an all-day creative doodling café with pop-up author signings, competitions, Tales on Moon Lane bookshop, quizzes & games.

To view the full programme simply scroll down – you can also download the programme as a PDF here.

STORYSTOCK is sponsored by angels & urchins magazine, Finlay Brewer, Keystone Tutors, Science Wizards & Song Academy in partnership with the Bush Theatre
