Suitcase Stories

Part of the Bowness Children's Festival

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction shares a building with the Old Laundry Theatre and this October half-term is hosting a Children’s Festival!

A well-travelled lady captivates her audience with stories she has gathered on her journeys around the world, from Yorkshire, through Poland and on to India!  Using only the contents of her suitcase she creates landscapes of mountains and jungles, costumes for shepherds and kings and finds unique ways to bring characters to life. The children become a part of the story by helping our teller to create waves of water, make the sound of an army, hide away their dancing fairies and organise a troop of monkeys.

The performance was created to inspire children’s love of stories and enhance their knowledge of different cultures from around the world.

Suitable for 3 – 7 year olds.

Duration: 55 mins

Shows at 11am and 2pm
