Short Story Lady parties offer a unique storytelling experience for your child. I have full CRB clearance and Public Liability Insurance, and hold a BA in Early Years Care and education. I am a member of the Society for Storytellers (SfS). All packages are for up to 30 children, although larger parties can be negotiated by prior arrangement. You can choose from a range of packages to suit your requirements:
Short Story Lady party £250
The 2 hour package is £250 and includes a 30-minute story session, 30-minute craft session, 15 minutes playing with puppets, then a 30-minute “imagination journey” where we all work together to build our own story. I would then type the story up, frame it, and send it to you a week after the party as a memento, with unframed copies for the party guests. A short “wind down” for the children, then they are ready for their party food and cake (supplied by host).
Imagination journey package £150
1-hour “imagination journey” package for £150, which comprises a 15-minute craft session and welcome, 30 minutes of “imagination journey” where we work together to make our own story, then 15-minutes enacting the story with our puppets. The story will be typed up on parchment paper, beautifully hand-illustrated and framed, and sent to you a week later.
Storytelling package £100
The 1-hour “storytelling” package is £100 and comprises a 15-minute craft session and welcome, followed by a 30-minute story session, then 15-minutes of play activities with the puppets we made.
You can add a framed personalised story to the 1-hour package for £25 (usual price £33).
Imagination Journey session £100
30-minute workshop where Short Story Lady works with the children to create a story together. We explore characters and plot, beginnings and endings, the theme is tailored to your child’s interests but the story could end up anywhere their imaginations can take them! The story will be typed up and beautifully framed to keep as a memento.
Basic storytelling session £50
30-minute storytelling session, with traditional fairytales and folk tales from around the world, tailored to suit your child’s interests.
Basic craft session £60
30-minute workshop, creating story props and puppet-making, talking about why props help with storytelling.
I can also put you in touch with a caterer if you need the food or cake supplied.
