Goldilocks Story
Suitable for Foundation & KS1

Goldilocks and the Three Bears: A Visit from Mummy and Daddy Bear

Sing songs, experience the three bears’ amazing prop-boxes and go on a fantastic story-telling adventure with Mummy and Daddy Bear. Perfect for Foundation and KS1!

The visit is designed to help teachers meet the needs of the National Curriculum encouraging children to consider the thoughts, feelings and motives of different characters, become familiar with this age-old tale and develop their understanding of the story through hypothesising, imagining and exploring ideas with the help of our prop box. 

Before our visit, Glow contact relevant class teachers to ensure that we are meeting everybody’s needs as well as to offer some creative ideas for a few possible preliminary activities!

Story Stew
Suitable for Key Stages 1-2

A performance that brings traditional storytelling together with digital technology to create an inspiring and fun-filled show for children and families.

Story Stew uses live improvised visuals together with traditional oral storytelling to provide audiences with a new experience. Part illustration, part performance, Glow cleverly brings stories both new and old to life. A simple kitchen worktop surface acts as the central piece of set, upon which the ingredients for the ‘story stew’ can be found (characters, settings, props etc). In this exciting bake-off-inspired fairy-tale-filled adventure, the audience will find themselves directing the action as they choose their own characters and create stories afresh.

Letters from the Front
Suitable for Key Stages 3-4

A romantic and poignant performance developed by Glow to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Over 18 months a couple’s relationship blossoms through only written correspondence and, as their letters are passed to and fro, they fall in love.

Based on a remarkable real life story, ‘Letters from the Front’ focuses on Edith Ainscow and Geoffrey Boothby – a couple who were based in Birmingham and lived during the First World War. Edith and Geoffrey spent a total of four incomplete days with each other before Geoffrey left for training in Dorset, and then to the Front.

In this story, through Edith and Geoffrey’s letters, love, joy and sadness are shown to be as real in 1916 as they are today, and as they will be tomorrow.

The story is designed to help teachers meet the needs of the National Curriculum by encouraging young people to consider the challenges for Britain, Europe and the wider world during this significant period in history. This performance also develops pupils’ learning about the literature and historical context of World War One.
