Fairy Tales Tour

Paper Planes, Daisy Chains and Miss Trout Present A Sparkly Winter Literary Library Tour.

Join us on an enchanted journey into magical worlds where the bizarre, the mysterious and the extraordinary meet in the most strangest and beautiful of worlds. A Victorian street plays host to mischief and the moon, a little girl’s kindness showers into teeny stars, a blinking curse shines light on a unique little gift and three timely classic tales are revived in unexpected and spangled visions.

Every traditional fairy tale is accompanied by a new original piece of writing, encapsulating the magic and morals of old, with spectacle of the new.

The art of telling a story, can be enjoyed and engaged with through our interactive and immersive arrangement. Children from all backgrounds, bookworm, budding writer or novice will find themselves swept up in fun, colourful narratives, told in innovative performance style.

Our children’s theatre company, Paper Planes and Daisy Chains, are collaborating with Miss Trout, local renowned children’s storyteller and illustrator of bespoke crafts, to revive classic stories from the past with relevant social messages. Each story musically accompanied, with handmade sets and costumes, a visual and oral treat. These fairy tales will tour locally to Yorkshire libraries, community centres, schools and festivals, as a beautiful collection of moralistic tales, to engage and ignite creativity and passion into children.

The shows are ‘Pay want you think’ and ticket less, so just pop along to any of the following shows and you are sure to have a magical time with us. We will be taking donations at the end of each show.
