All of our black history month workshops are delivered by professional performers. The sessions are interactive and inclusive, with a whole school approach to the topic.

Choose your story…

Anansi The Spider

Watch your professional performer bring this classic African Folktale off the page. Celebrate Anansi, the original hero of African folklore, and watch your students become enthralled as your storyteller recounts how Anansi triumphed over foes bigger than himself. A fantastic story to capture Black History Month for the whole school.

The Leopard King

A profound African folk story that will highlight important life lessons for your students. This fantastic story tells of how external appearances can be misleading, and has an inspirational message that it doesn’t matter who were are, where are from, what we look like, we can achieve whatever we put our mind to in life.
