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.

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

In two days’ time the country will head to the polls to decide who our next government will be. While this will be a pivotal moment for the nation in many ways, at the Bush we are keenly aware of the shared responsibility of the sector to ensure arts and culture sit firm on our…

Bijan Sheibani: Drama is a means of finding our truer selves

I have been asked in the past whether male vulnerability is a running theme in my work.  Barber Shop Chronicles and The Brothers Size, two plays I recently directed, and my play The Arrival, all look at the way men open themselves up to one another and the difficulties men have in doing that.
