Stories from home

Throughout May and June 2020 we released a brand new short story. Created by storytellers in their homes, we hope these stories will feed the imagination and encourage you to find the extra-ordinary in the ordinary, and dream endlessly of what can happen at home.

The stories, which were chosen with the help of families in Leicester, will transport children into other dimensions, take them back in time and find new friendships in the strangest of places. We hope you enjoy our Stories from Home and they inspire you to share your stories with us.
