Booktrust Stories Tour Toolkit and Legacy Training- Leicester

Join Booktrust in Leicester for a training session that will leave you inspired to engage with families and put on fun arts events in your local area. We will be sharing all we have learnt from our latest storytelling project, the Stories Tour. The training session will cover:

  • Tips on touring
  • Ways to communicate with hard to reach communities and venues
  • Practical tips for ar tists and venue hosts
  • Information on applying for funding.
The Stories Tour ran 60 events in Libraries, Community Centres and Prisons reaching over 1500 children and their families. The storytelling events featured an original play, local storytellers and free books and resources for families. The tour was particularly targeted at Bangladeshi, Somali and Pakistani families and over 70% of attendees were from this background.
