Green Mice, Dueling Doctors, A Postman Post, The Worlds Tallest Woman ! A rich mix of historical tales based on the work of Dr Chris Upton developed as part of Birmingham Hippodrome and Sampad’s Arts Champions Project.

The tales were told in libraries and community centres from Edgbaston to Bartley Green and were accessed by children, families and Older Adults.

The performances were interactive and lasted between 30 minutes to an hour they were followed either by discussion or a peg doll making activity where participants were encouraged to create one of the characters as a momento.

It was such a fun project and there was a fabulous response that I am in the process of developing further stories based on Chris Uptons’ Research to cover the other areas of Birmingham.
