Event Description

On Monday 23 October the branches of Kate’s Storytree will be stretching out as she invites children and families to let their creativity blossom and join her for a special story telling session with Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and Stratford Library.  This free half term activity will take place across two sessions, starting at 10.30am and 2.00pm.


The story that Kate tells will literally build before the children’s eyes, as Kate uses wooden blocks to illustrate the words and actions of the evolving plot, with plenty of surprises along the way!  For Kate, a dedicated children’s storyteller from Stratford, the spaces and environments that she creates are just as important as the stories themselves, with rainbows, bunting, colourful blankets and art materials often part of the creative mix.


The morning session (10.30-12.15) will begin at Stratford Library and end at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall, participants will walk to the Guildhall from the Library via the route the young William would have trodden.  Tickets for the morning session can be booked via the link here.


The afternoon session (2.00-3.30pm) will take place at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and there is no need to book. Both sessions are FREE.
