Story Tent 

Story tent brings stories really alive, helps my child to listen carefully and develops her imagination. The craft activity helps her remember the story and she re-tells it all week!

‘I devised Story Tent in 2005 at the invitation of Trestle Theatre. Story Tent is an interactive storytelling session, with craft, where parents and preschool children come to imagine, play and create together.

Under a cosy and colourful tent, I tell highly interactive stories, where children smell and taste, see and touch, sing and move while listening to stories from around the world; stories which have delighted old and young for generations.”  – Kathryn Holt
