The Reading Rep Theatre have announced that they will be launching a new offering called Teddy Bear Story Time, which will run every Saturday at 10:30am-11:30am from 24 February – 30 March.

Children from ages 18 months - 5 years will be invited to dive into the world of a curiously hungry caterpillar, and the mischief of a forgetful mog! From The Gruffalo's lair to the whimsy of Where's Spot?, every session is a wild journey through the realms of imagination.

Tickets for each story time session is priced at £5 for a single adult and child (which also includes a free drink for the adult from the Reading Rep bar) and £2.50 for an additional adult or child.

Teddy Bear Story Time forms part of Reading Rep’s ENGAGE:10 programme. To mark the programme’s tenth anniversary, the year-long programme of workshops, projects, and performances for and with the community of Reading, from early years through to care homes.

ENGAGE, Reading Rep Theatre’s flagship and multi award-winning education and outreach programme, inspires lifelong engagement with theatre for thousands of children, young people and vulnerable adults who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with arts and culture.

Across the year, ENGAGE:10 will work with 49 organisations, 7,600 active participants, 200 practitioners, and provide 60 work experience opportunities.

Chris Cuming, Head of ENGAGE said: “I’m proud to be presenting our Story Times to Early Years, ever showing our commitment to ensuring that there are opportunities for all through each stages of their life. We will be welcoming people to our building to have a coffee and for their young people to experience stories through theatre.”
