STORYSTOCK, the travelling story circus lands 6-8th April 2016 for all story lovers.

Instead of clowns we have storytellers, there’s no trapeze but plenty of live literature acts and the workshops involve writing, science & songwriting. This is all the fun of the circus with fewer animals…

Come & celebrate this year of literary anniversaries with 400 years since Shakespeare, Beatrix Potter’s 150th & Roald Dahl’s 100th birthdays.

If you’re a Wimpy Kid, you like to Potter or are as mad as a Hatter, like Tigers for Tea, doodle your days away or have a Midas touch you’ll love STORYSTOCK.

Bookish acts will bring stories to life through live shows, storytelling, creative workshops, parties & story treasure hunt. Hosted by the fabulous Storymaster with an all-day creative doodling café with pop-up author signings, competitions, Tales on Moon Lane bookshop, quizzes & games.

Get busy at our all-day doodling cafe with characters from your favourite books joining in the fun. Browse our bookshop and enjoy pop-up author signings and performances. There’s also the chance to snuggle in our storybook corner with hot chocolate, coffee and goodies from the cafe.
