Brompton Annual Open Day Event Roundup
This was the first outdoor event Music Audio Stories has taken part in! I quickly realised our stall set-up was not prepared for any type of breeze! Our baby blue table cloth kept flying up all over the place! I had to find inventive ways to tie it to the table legs and tuck it underneath around the edges! My price tags, poster and demo Storytime Package kept blowing away and Adie spent most of his time on breeze patrol keeping our table in order!
I don't think anyone noticed our little dilemma! People began to stroll through Brompton Cemetery at around 11 am and it seemed to get busy quite quickly! I didn't have too much time to spend chatting with people as I had to leave our stall to prepare for my Storytime!
My Storytime began at 12 noon. I felt so excited! I never imagined that I would ever do Storytime in a chapel! The ceiling inside the chapel is high, creating wonderful acoustics, and I couldn't wait to hear how 'Billy Joins the Circus' sounded! I was a little concerned about the children drawing on the beautiful stone ground! So I brought a large piece of blue tarpaulin to cover the floor when we made our drawings of the story. This worked a treat!
I have to say, this is one Storytime I will never forget! It was truly magical! I had a large group of children who greatly enjoyed listening and learning all about my audiobook 'Billy Joins the Circus'! We had so much fun singing and dancing along to the story and everyone joined in! The children took their drawings home with them and I am happy to report I left the chapel floor in tip-top condition thanks to the tarpauling! Some of the families had been to my Storytime at Brompton Library which was nice!
