Local primary school children 'Dream Big' with Grand Theatre pantomime project

Ten local Primary Schools have taken part in a Grand Theatre project which saw performance poet and comedienne Emma Purshouse deliver creative writing workshops in schools throughout the year.

This inspired them to write short bedtime stories, some of which were published in a book and all of the entries are now on display at the Light House in Wolverhampton until the end of January.

The project, which launched in February 2018 culminated in a unveiling event which was attended by the schools involved along with their teachers and Emma Purshouse who read out a selection of stories. 

30 stories have been published into a book which has been designed and printed by JPL Print & Design Ltd who were also in attendance alongside Promise Dreams who will receive the profits from the sales of the book as a donation to their charity. James Collins, Creative Learning Co-ordinator at the theatre said:

“It was a fantastic day unveiling the hard work of the children all of whom came together to see their work on display. The work represents the entire community, with children of all different backgrounds joining as one to celebrate their achievement over the past year.”

To visit the exhibition, see light-house.co.uk for opening times over the Christmas period.
