A Carnival of Stories

At this special under-fives event to celebrate Black History Month 2021, our friends from the Freshwater Theatre Company will lead on this engaging session which draw upon our senses and take us on a journey around the library to to find clues from England, Kenya and the Caribbean to create a story together.

Drawing upon a collection of classic books including 'Amazing Grace', Handa's Surprise' and 'Island Counting' this is the perfect event for any young book lover!

Suitable for children aged 3 to 5 years old.


Public Participation


If possible use ear piece with microphone to get the best sound quality. Connect to your internet via a wired connection not wifi.


By agreeing to speak at this event you understand it will be live streamed to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter and made publicly available afterwards, unless there is good reason, but we hope to avoid such scenarios.


The following measures will be used in all sessions to ensure that all participants including children and young people are protected while taking part in our event.

Abusive or inappropriate behaviour by any other attendee at the event will not be tolerated and the offending person will be immediately removed from the session and potentially referred to the appropriate authorities.

At no point will children and/or young people be in one-on-one conversation with any single other person. There will always be a Host/ Co-Host or representative of one of the youth organisations (all of whom have safeguarding policies in place) present.

Although we recognise that being able to see one another helps sessions feel more interactive and personal, we respect that some people including children and/young people may wish to turn their video feed off, or parts of it. They can do this using the “Stop Video” button at the bottom of their screen.

Thank you!
