Do you have a question about a Story Sock event?
What happens in a Story Sock class?
The first stage of each class is listening to a carefully selected story. With the help of the Story Sock the book is brought to life with props and characters making sure each child has individual attention.
The second stage is the activity - a chance to explore the book further. This takes the form of an art/craft activity as well as games, songs and activities all of which will link with the story.
My child won't sit still - will Story Sock suit them?
Sitting down and listening is very much a learned skill and one we can't expect our children to do without practise. At Story Sock this is one of the fundamental things we teach, and it can take a few sessions to notice the change.
What is the age range for Story Sock events?
Story Sock sessions are for 2-6 year olds. We mix our ages as we find the younger children can really learn from the older ones as well as it being nice for siblings to attend together. It is absolutely fine to bring siblings along free of charge...until they want to get involved in the class!
Why pay a membership fee?
A membership fee is essential for Story Sock as we use books protected by copyright, Therefore, these books can only be used as part of a members only group. For the minimal fee you pay, we make sure you get back your money back with our welcome pack.
How much does a session cost?
A Class is £7 per child and an additional £3 for siblings. We ask for this in advance so we can make sure we cater to everyone with the art materials.

Do you have a question about Story Sock parties?
What happens at a Story Sock party?
A Story Sock party works very much like a class, It begins with all the children sitting around me for for Story (with props and characters from the Story Sock) and features an art & craft activity for everyone to take home. In addition to this we also play themed, age specific games.
What is the age range for a Story Sock party?
The age for a Story Sock party is 2-6. Your party will be themed to the age of your child.
How long does a Story Sock party last?
A Story Sock party lasts for 1 hour, although we can be booked for longer for an additional cost.
What is the cost of a Story Sock party?
This is dependent on the number of children at the party and the length of party you require. Prices start at £120.
What themes can I have for a Story Sock party?
A Story Sock party can really be themed around anything at all - either something specific such as your child's favourite book or something more general such as pirates, princesses, animals or sea creatures. The possibilities are endless!
