The Young Storyhouse team run Storyhouse’s Youth Theatre and Young Storyhouse programme. Whilst the building is temporarily closed, they’ve made a series of fun online sessions for children and young people to complete, either on their own or with their family. These sessions are all under 5 minutes long, and suitable for all primary school-aged children.
These sessions were filmed at Storyhouse before social distancing measures were put in place.
