Are you sitting comfortably? Let Towngate read you a story – at bedtime or anytime.
Whilst the Towngate Theatre is unable to reopen for productions, Storytelling at the Towngate will be on hold until further notice – boo!
However, we are absolutely delighted to bring you Towngate Stories online – hooray! Our Education & Outreach Leader, Hayley, has recorded a number of storytelling videos so we can continue to take you and your little ones on a magical adventure whilst we’re closed to the public. And look out for the videos from our Special Guest storytellers – panto stars Simon Fielding and Sophie Ladds, and West End superstar Darren Day!
We hope you enjoy our stories, which are also available on our Facebook (@towngate) and Instagram (@towngatetheatre) please feel free to like, share and comment! We hope you enjoy watching and we can’t wait for the day when we will be able to safely hold Storytelling in the Towngate again.
Watch online now…
