Lunchtime Tales: Live from the Library Attic

Part of London Literature Festival

‘Once upon a time’ goes live and interactive in a rambunctious performance on the City of Stories radio station.

‘Welcome to City of Stories radio...’ begins the announcer. But then there is silence. The City of Stories radio station is broken!

Luckily, some friendly storytellers, the Patchlarks, and their young helpers have been inventing brand new fairy tales all morning in the library attic.

Dusting off the old transmitter, rustling up an announcer’s script from the archive, they are ready to step in and save the day.

But they are going to have to make it all up... and they need your help.

Prepare to be part of an interactive show brimming with newly invented fairy tales, improvised songs, fun challenges and a glorious performance.
