World Book Day 2024

We have enchanting workshops to super-charge imaginations for World Book Day 2024!

Our most popular options are our large group storytelling sessions; led by an engaging and experienced Storyteller, they’ll work with up to 120 of your children to bring celebrated stories to life.  Each session explore tales from one continent; choose from stories from Africa, Asia or Europe.

We can also work with a class at a time, focusing on an individual children’s book. Tickle the fancy of younger readers with The Gruffalo or The Rainbow Fish. Or, for older readers, our Story Quests or Shakespeare Plays are the perfect way to spark their imaginations. Explore all your options for World Book Day workshops below . . .
