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

Who is Taylor Mac?

Taylor Mac is one of the most dynamic and explosive voices in America right now. Seriously. You should know about this. 1. A critically acclaimed, legendary theatre artist Until Hir (that’s the show the Bush is doing) Mac normally stars in judy’s (that’s the pronoun Mac uses) own productions. So this is the first play judy’s just the playwright…

Arthur Darvill leads cast of Hir

Casting has been announced for Taylor Mac’s anarchic comedy Hir. Mac started writing it an incredible 17 years ago.
