Blue Bermondsey Children’s Story Walks are perfect for families to enjoy these activities together. You can choose one or all of our storytelling experiences. The stories encourage children to reimagine the world around them here in the Blue with amazing characters told by professional storytellers from different ethnic backgrounds.
To listen to the stories, scroll down and follow the instructions. In addition to the audio tracks, there are some activity sheets for kids to use along or at the end of each trail.
Blue Bermondsey asked our friends at London Dreamtime to create a series of very special Children’s Story Walks for families to explore South Bermondsey in a different way. Together we approached Arts Council England with our idea and they liked it so much that they kindly provided funding. We hope you like them.
