As seen in...
Storytelling is an amazing tool for both learning and entertaining.
Over seven years, we have developed and delivered an exciting educational programme across a vast number of South Wales schools that embrace and celebrate the new curriculum. Not only has our storytelling been a fantastic way to engage pupils in creative approaches to learning, but it has also allowed us to provide high quality entertainment at festivals, events and private parties. With a team of strong and experienced performers behind us, we are able to weave our storytelling into a variety of settings, creating magical memories for children as we go.
What parents say
“We attended the Superheroes vs Villains story trail today and had an absolute blast! My son (who is six) was buzzing and loved every second. He has asked to book some more. Thanks guys – you are awesome!”
“Fabulous morning with the Louby Lou team. The children thought it was magical and loved searching for mythical creatures. The team who run this are so lovely with the kids and have masses of energy and enthusiasm.”
Our established educational workshops focus on embedding and exploring creative approaches to learning through the Expressive Arts.
We provide a calendar of high quality events for families across South Wales, whilst also providing entertainment for festivals and events.
Each year, we write, produce and perform small scale family shows which appear in theatres, venues and schools across the UK.
Louby Lou’s Storytelling was established in October 2016 by Sarah Hancock, a Blaenau Gwent based actor with a passion in delivering creative sessions for children and their parents. After a few taster sessions at a community hall and support from a local library, Louby Lou’s grew from strength to strength and the rest is history.
Sarah is a Creative Agent and Creative Practitioner for Arts Council Wales and has been providing Lead Creative Schools projects through Louby Lou’s since 2018. The work with Arts Council Wales has allowed her to gain a deep understanding of the new Welsh curriculum and how Expressive Arts plays an important role in the development of a child’s learning. This knowledge continues to ripple throughout all aspects of our company, whether it be for education or entertainment.
