Tameside Story Makers

What is Story Makers?

Story Makers Sunny and Rainy Days sessions are fun and interactive story telling sessions aimed at children aged 0-4 years and their families.  Simon the Story Teller delivers weekly sessions in libraries and online via Zoom.  The Story Makers Sunny and Rainy Days sessions are funded by Community Safety.
Families will have the opportunity to  attend workshops with award winning children's writer Caryl Hart and illustrator Andrew Rowland to help create a children’s picture book, which will be printed and published. All families attending the sessions will receive a free copy at the book launch.

How much are the sessions?

All the Story Makers sessions are free.

Do I have to book a place?

There is no need to book a place this year, you can just turn up at the sessions. If you would like to attend the Zoom session you will need to ask for the link by emailing .
