Lorna Shields's headshot

Lorna is a partner in award winning storytelling company It's in the bag!

It's in the bag! delight in taking children's imaginations on a magical journey. Children join us on a storytelling adventure; we use rhymes, songs, creative games, drama and puppets to bring the story to life. The children are given little riddles and have to guess what's in the bag? Each game, activity and song is tied into the theme and builds into one big story. The theme can be linked to learning topics in schools and nurseries or we can be booked for a special event or end of term party.
