STORYSTOCK is a travelling circus that lands in unusual spaces to bring stories to life for families. The group launched in 2013 with a sell-out festival of stories over 4 days at the Bush Theatre in West London and have since taken its circus of stories to Selfridges Department Store, The Royal Opera House, The Saatchi Gallery, Lyric Hammersmith, Omnibus Clapham and Battersea Power Station. STORYSTOCK has conjured stories at Daylesford Farm and celebrated Divali at Dishoom Restaurant Kings Cross. The group can be found annually at Wilderness festival in Oxfordshire and can bring fun to any building, field, festival or shop that needs it.
