Tall Tales: Interactive Storytelling for Under Fives

Tall Tales: Interactive Storytelling for Under Fives


Tall Tales is a small local company that provides fun sessions aimed at under fives.

Sessions include crafts, games, songs and movement. They are all focused on a different educational topic aiming to teach children basic ideas, such as ‘the seasons’, through the use of art, storytelling and many other fun mediums.

Sessions offer something different and unique. The chance for little ones to let off some steam and have fun whilst learning!

Sessions are currently running on Mondays at 10.30 at Science Alive inside Harlow Leisurezone.

Check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.

Harlow Tweetup

Our third Harlow Tweetup, and the first of 2014, will be held at Harlow Town Cricket Club on 29th January from 5:30. There will be an optional mini-pub quiz with proceeds going to No Child Without, a great local charity which provides financial support for young people across Harlow in order to help them access educational and extra-curricular opportunities that may usually be beyond their means.

It is a great opportunity to make local social, community and business links, in a relaxed atmosphere.
