The Elves and the Shoemaker

Story Storks Interactive storytelling workshops (12 weeks to 7 yrs)

Friday 21st Feb 2020

Cost – £7.50 per child

The Exchange – Studio 1, 4th Floor

Early Years Theatre Company Story Storks invite you to join their storyteller for a magical romp through The Elves and the Shoemaker.  We make shoes with the elves and sell them to some well-known characters (including the local princess who keeps losing one shoe!)  Full of song, music, dance, drama, counting and cobbling techniques (!) these workshops are a perfect introduction to this fairytale classic.

There are three workshops to choose from, specially tailored to the level of your child

10:05 am – MERMAIDS & PIRATES LEVEL (2 – 7yrs) Approx 40 mins  

10:55am – FAIRIES & PIRATES (1-7yrs toddlers welcome)  Approx 40 mins

11:35am – PIXIES & SPRITES (12 weeks to 1yr) Approx 30 mins


Do I need a ticket for myself?

  • No.  You only need to buy tickets for the kids.  Siblings under 12 months can attend the 10:55am for free, and under 18 months can attend the 10:05am for free.

Do we stay with the children?

  • Yes.  The workshops are written to be lots of fun, and the kids who get the most out of it are the ones who’s grown-ups join in too!

My child won’t sit still for a story.  Is this for them?

  • Yes.  We don’t just sit and listen to the story.  We get the children up on their feet, acting out parts of the story, singing, dancing and living the tale.  We don’t read to the children – it’s all done through a mix of storytelling and drama.
