Our aim has always been to make creative and interactive theatre, drama based parties and events for children. We want to ignite children’s imaginations, promote teamwork and create lots and lots of fun throughout.
2018: Our unique parties were born
We set off providing party entertainment across the UK and then shortly afterwards began hosting the Friday morning preschool class at York Theatre Royal and so, Crafty Tales was born.
2019: We put on quite a show at Beningbrough Hall
We started running more of our craft and storytelling sessions across Yorkshire creating fantastic partnerships with Goose of Harrogate and Rural Arts in Thirsk, running weekly classes as well as special holiday events.
Our Partnerships continued to grow, and in 2019 we were absolutely thrilled to write and devise a new piece for Beningbrough Hall, part of the magnificent National Trusts.
2020: Storytelling with the big man himself
2020 brought with it, new . . . if not a little surprising, opportunities. We were very lucky to have ongoing support of our story craft family and friends, locally and internationally. And continued providing birthday parties and Crafty Tales online; as well as a sell-out Halloween show. Our charity event at the end of November was a huge success and we managed raise over £2000 for the wonderful Shine21 organisation.
We finished 2020 being part of Christmas at one of the most magnificent historic buildings here in North Yorkshire, Castle Howard. Storyelling with the big man himself.
2021: From Fairytales to Dinosaurs
2021 gave us a whole host of new collaborations. We worked with Spilman Farm creating an exciting dinosaurs exhibition as well as devising an engaging and educational show for Kiplin Hall and Gardens. We performed twice at the Mill Theatre in Stillington and started a new Crafty Tales session on Thursday at Theatre@41.
We were thrilled to be back a Castle Howard for some Summer crafty tales fun as well as more wonderful Storytelling with Santa over Christmas.
2022: Even BIGGER adventures
2022 has kicked off with us winning another wonderful Little Vikings award....3 years in a row! We can't tell you how lucky we feel from all the support we have received. Thank you so much.
We are very VERY excited about what this year has in store. We are already getting very booked up with parties as well as Easter events and have exciting plans for Summer shows, plus a new interactive accessible piece of theatre we will be creating in Autumn for a Spring 2023 tour.
