Talk of the town – Literature – Storystock, the travelling circus of stories

Storystock at Battersea Power Station

Storystock, the travelling circus of stories, is bringing a programme of family literary fun to Circus West Village, Battersea Power Station, this half term.

From February 12 to 14, primary school children will be entertained with live literature shows, immersive workshops, performances and interactive storytelling sessions.


The activities will take place at The Village Hall, a new community arts and cultural venue at Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station.

Special guest appearances include children’s author and illustrator Judith Kerr, who will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Tiger Who Came To Tea on February 13 with a live storytelling performance, followed by a Q&A.

Families can take the time to explore Circus West Village together and enjoy lunch or a drink overlooking the Thames. Parents can also leave their children to be entertained at one of the workshops and visit one of the many restaurants, go spinning at Boom Cycle, or explore the Battersea Power Station Design Store for gifts and homeware.

Battersea Power Station’s pop up space under Grosvenor Arch will also host a bookshop, a free supervised doodle bar for kids, and space for parking prams.

Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Battersea Power Station is a great place for families to visit this half term.

“Our literary festival, in partnership with Storystock, is going to feature a fun-packed programme of literature shows, immersive workshops, performances and interactive storytelling sessions. It is sure to be a great day out for young visitors and grown-ups alike and a good opportunity to explore the exciting new neighbourhood that is emerging here.”
