Storystock brings stories to life in fields, castles, theatres, galleries, streets and private homes
We launched in 2013 with a sell-out festival of stories at Bush Theatre in West London. We have since taken our circus of stories to Selfridges Department Store for a month long run of Christmas events, The Royal Opera House, The Saatchi Gallery, Lyric Hammersmith, Omnibus Clapham, Battersea Power Station, Kings Place, Bellport Long Island USA and lately the newly renovated Riverside Studios.
We can be found annually at Wilderness festival in Oxfordshire, we’ve conjured stories at Daylesford Farm and celebrated Divali at Dishoom Restaurant Kings Cross.
If you know a building, field, festival, shop or museum which is hungry for words, pictures, music and poetry in a silly or/and serious way then let us know and we’ll bring the fun to you.
A magical, travelling circus, captivating the imaginations of children across the UK.
Father Christmas & The Polar Express
Father Christmas invites you to join him for a very special Christmas event
He would like to share with you and your family the magic of Christmas. Storystock – in association with Andersen Press – presents a sparkling LIVE streaming from his fireside chair straight into your homes. Sit snugly in your pyjamas and listen to Father Christmas reading you his favourite story, The Polar Express, and personally sending you his Christmas wishes.
This is magical online immersive experience to get everyone in the mood for Christmas. Storystock has been working closely with Santa’s elves to put together a truly festive bundle of fun to keep you all busy and entertained in the run-up to Christmas.
Throughout lockdown we have been curating a programme of readings, drawalongs, creative writing masterclasses and poetry events with Riverside Studios for their Digital Dive In Virtual Space.
With contributors from Michael and Clare Morpurgo, Sophy Henn, Petr Horacek, Piers Torday, Rob Starling and lots more. Have a look on our YouTube channel for clips from the events.
