YOUNG members of a Reading church are looking forward to an extra-special bedtime story later this month.
For their story will be given by Bob Hartman, a performance storyteller for children. He uses his dynamic and interactive style to entertain audiences.
Bob is a familiar face at major festivals across the UK as well as being the author of the Lion’s Storyteller Series and several picture books including The Wolf who Cried Boy.
His programme combines traditional folk tales from around the world, retold in his fresh, inimitable style, with his own stories. And the pastor also loves to help children (and adults) create their own stories.
“I love to retell stories from the Bible,” he said. “I find that crawling into a text, asking questions and then coming out the other side, is the best way to discover what it’s all about – to be surprised, challenged, moved and won over.”
Bob will be leading the all-age storytelling performance at Greyfriars Church in Friar Street, Reading on Thursday, March 29.
The event starts at 6.45pm and tickets are now on sale. For more details, call (0118) 951 6703 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
