Sunday Storytime with Story Craft Theatre

June 20, 2021

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, repeating until June 27, 2021

Following the success of last year’s Christmas Grotto, Story Craft Theatre are returning to Castle Howard.

Every Sunday in June they will be hosting rather special craft and storytelling sessions (6th, 13th, 20th and 27th June).

With our wonderful new exhibition in place they’ll be keeping the workshops Moth related; a great way to engage little folk in these wonderful and incredibly important insects. The sessions are approximately 50 minutes long, with hellos and a little warm-up to start, followed by moth craft making; this will be done together with all materials provided. Then it’s time for some interactive storytelling, with games, music, characters and much more. The sessions are based on beautiful picture books, either ‘An Extraordinary Ordinary Moth’ by Karlin Gray or ‘Luna Moth’ by Yunmie Kim.

Pre-booking is essential as the number of bubbles is limited for each workshop. The workshops will take place outside the Walled Garden. There will be some cover if needed but we suggest bringing along suitable clothing, sun cream (fingers crossed) and a blanket as you will be asked to sit on the floor.

Suitable for 2-7 year olds, tickets for Sunday Storytime must be purchased in addition to a Gardens ticket.
