Story Craft Theatre launched in 2018; our aim has always been to make creative and interactive drama based parties and events for children. We want to ignite children’s imaginations, promote teamwork and create lots and lots of fun throughout.
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.
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.
At the end of 2019 we were nominated for, and won, the Little Vikings Award for Best Creative Class and Best Birthday Party entertainers; an honour for which we were incredibly grateful.
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. Storytelling with the big man himself!
We can’t wait to keep on growing throughout 2021, making little folk . . . and big folk . . . laugh and learn through crafting and storytelling fun.
