Preparing to watch

This event is suitable for children aged 7+. This is an exciting and high energy event and has moments of high volume (e.g. cheering, a car horn, shushing, characters shouting and sound effects during the story extract).

If you are working with children sensitive to loud noise, we recommend watching the video on your own first to determine if it would be suitable for them.

After the event, if you want to share your stories or writing inspired by Ade's video, share them on Twitter(this will open in a new window) using #InclusiveStories and @ScottishBkTrust.
