Creative Writing workshop with Katherine Woodfine

Budding writer? Novelist of tomorrow? Katherine Woodfine, bestselling author of The Sinclair’s Mysteries, will be delivering this creative writing workshop for 7-11 year olds. Find out more about Katherine’s work, get expert tips and guidance and hone your own writing skills. Book signing will be available.

Hansel & Gretel

In the spirit of Halloween, children (and grown-ups too!) are invited to dress up and go wild with their imaginations and the best costume will get a free slice of freshly baked home-made cake! The Tiny Steps team are hoping to see lots of little witches and vampires and other creatures. The Hansel and Gretel performance will feature theatre, music and dance ranging from contemporary to ballet. Children will love the classic magical fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel performed through acting and movement by professional dancers and performers, Svetlana Ovsyannikova and Herbert DesLauriers.

Following the performance there will be an after-show workshop where children can learn a few dance moves with the performers!”

Suitable for 0-8 year old



Funky Fabula Disco

To celebrate the end of a fabulous Fabula weekend get down at our disco with exciting party games, lots of dancing, colourful disco lights, a brilliant children’s entertainer and loads of fantastic prizes to be won! So get your best party outfit ready and come join the fun.

Fabula Festival on the High Street!

Shed of Stories

Overnight a small mysterious shed appears.  The doors are opened, words and stories tumble out, music and laughter begins to fill the air and then, as if by magic – children start to arrive…

Tales will be told at various intervals throughout the day.  Between story times the shed becomes a pop-up library where children and families can read together.  There will also be a small writing desk with paper and pencils where older children can pen their next masterpiece.

High Road, Ilford
