Covid-19/Coronavirus Update

Due to the unprecedented situation with Covid-19/Coronavirus we have decided to postpone the 2020 programme of theatre events and school workshops.

While we can't put on our programme of wonderful writers, poets and illustrators this Autumn, we will be back in Autumn 2021. It will be even more important to spread some joy to schoolchildren and their teachers after this unsettling period. In the meantime, we're also looking into other ways of reaching our audience, perhaps it will be virtual, perhaps it will be in outdoor spaces, but do keep an eye of what we're doing via our website and social media channels.

Now, more than ever, we need uplifting stories and ways to stay connected. We have been sharing some of our favourite ideas to help you, parents, children, teachers, discover great children's books and all the joy they contain. Take a look at our What's Happening page!

Finally, if you'd like to make a donation to help us get through this very challenging time you can do so here. As ever we are incredibly grateful for any help we receive.

Want to help more children attend our events in the future?
