May Half Term Storytelling Sessions

2 June 2021, 8:00 am - 5 June 2021, 5:00 pm

Cambridge is full of fascinating stories. Are you ready to hear some of them?

We are really excited to be able to hold these Storytelling sessions in person, with professional storyteller and folklorist Chip Colquhoun, in the museum courtyard! But we’re also offering a few online sessions for those who cannot come into the museum. This is a FREE event for children.

How do I sign up?

It is very easy: you need to go to this eventbrite link and choose a slot on the date and time you want to attend. Spaces are limited so we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Who can attend?

This is an event for children +5 years old (although kids of any age might enjoy it), who must be accompanied by an adult during the whole duration of the session. We recommend that, whenever possible, only one adult attends per group of up to 4 children. This is to keep everyone Covid-19 safe, and make sure that there is enough space in our courtyard for everyone to be comfortable.

We are only able to accommodate 4 families in our courtyard. If you have accessibility requirements, please let us know on the email below so we can do our best to meet your needs.

What happens if it rains?

Because our courtyard is not covered, we will be forced to cancel this event if the weather is bad. You will be told in advance if we have to cancel, and be offered the option to join us for an online, free, storytelling session instead.

What do I need?

On the day of the event, you only need to show up 5 minutes before the start of the session so that we can show you to your place, and make sure you know the name of the person who made the reservation (we will ask you this at the entrance). Unfortunately, we cannot accept late comers as this can be disruptive for the audience and the performer.

If you are attending the online sessions, you should book 1 ticket per device you are going to use (i.e. if there are three kids but all of them will watch on the same single device, you need to book 1 ticket only)

To attend, you must have a broadband connection and Zoom installed on your computer, phone, or other device.

Installing Zoom is free, and you can access it via a phone, laptop, or tablet.

You can download Zoom here: https://zoom.us/

A link to join will be sent to all attendees 20min before the start of the sessions, so please keep an eye on your emails on the day.

Children attending this event must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Any questions, please email us on eventbrite@museumofcambridge.org.uk

We look forward to seeing you soon!

This free event is made possible thanks to a grant by Cambridge City Council.
