Story Play® provides storytelling in schools and sessions for early years settings.

Story Play® has been developed over many years by Carol Florence Graham who is a professional storyteller and writer. Carol has a degree in English and American Literature; a background in holistic education, a training in dramatherapy, and the Level Three Forest School Practitioner’s Award. She delivers storytelling workshops in schools and in many other settings across England and Wales, and also CPD for educators. Projects include working with Nursery to Year 4 at a local primary school; a storytelling project in South Wales; CPD workshops at the Bishops Wood Centre in Worcestershire, and workshops for Montessori International in London. Find out more about Story Play projects on the blog page.

New for 2019-20 are workshops and author visits to accompany ‘The Woodcutter’s Tale’ published by Ragged Bears and available in the autumn of 2019. These sessions explore the power of the imagination, kindness, and the importance of respecting nature and living sustainably.

“Arts make the Difference.”

In July 2012 we were delighted to receive funding from the Hereford Community Foundation to run a pilot project in an Early Years setting in Hereford. This, along with other recent work, has enabled Story Play to become a social enterprise company using storytelling and play sessions to make a difference to the lives of children.

More projects are in the pipeline. In November 2012 there was a meeting with Herefordshire Schools to roll out a series of Story Play programmes across Nursery, Reception and Year One Classes.  And a potential project with Halo Leisure is being drawn up in the New Year.
