participated in any drama or performance
before & it was a massive achievement for
them to perform in front of an audience

work with.
Princess Royal University HospitalChildren’s Ward receives monthly visits
from Creative Learning Storytellers
Sometimes in groups of children and their
parents- other times in one to one work
with children.
Sessions are interactive with voices and
acting, and the games and art activities
which allow the children an opportunity to
explore characters, create their own
stories and act them out.
Positive outcomes are children learning in
a fun way, a sense of wellbeing, more
relaxed and confident children and a
positive recovery process.
