Walking Stories Schools Performances

We were delighted this year to offer free schools performances of our festival show Walking Stories. These took place with years 5/6 from St. Alfege’s and St. Peter’s Primary School and Invicta Primary in Greenwich.

“I thought it was absolutely excellent! Very safe, moving, beautiful. I felt the group was well “held” by the practitioners – allowed us as teachers to “let go” and allow freedom to the children to experience [it].”

“Absolutely fantastic. Personally I found it difficult initially to let go of the children but in the end I realised they were safe and okay. For me it was calming and relaxing.”

Some comments from the pupils…..
“I love the part when we ran off” “It made me think about nature”
“I liked the part where we hid and the image is still in my head”
“I like it because it made me calm and it made you notice what’s going on around you”
“For me it was very wonderful, mesmerising and a great experience so in other words it was great!”
