Captivating storytelling activities with our favorite "English fella and storyteller."

21/22 Youth & Families

In this interactive virtual workshop, England-born Simon Brooks takes you on a storytelling journey. Get ready for group games where you'll perform dynamic characters and explore the elements of an engaging story. You might also help him create a story from scratch! 
This event takes place virtually via Zoom and welcomes the whole family, but is ideal for ages 4-6. 
This event is presented in partnership with the West Claremont Center for Music and the Arts and the Claremont Parks & Recreation Department.

Simon Brooks began storytelling to groups and family audiences in 1991 in England, becoming a professional teller in 2003 in America. Born in England and making many trips in and out of Wales, Simon was raised on traditional tales. The love of his work is as inherent as his love of stories. After you have finished your journey into Simon's stories, you will wonder how so many memorable characters and voices came out of one man. Audiences, even the most skeptical, leave Simon's presentations fully understanding the magic inherent in a story powerfully told. Simon has performed at hundreds of schools, libraries and festivals including the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee and the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Utah.
