The holistic sessions explore stories, storytelling and storymaking with a range of colourful and engaging arts-based activities and there are also workshops for educators and parents.

Arts Connect West Midlands has recently awarded Story Play a research and development grant and this will enable Story Play to develop new programmes at Grange Court in Leominster (www.grangecourt.org).
