Stories from the Forests at SAB copy



Imagine Leeds as a forest – a complex, diverse place with no wide landscape, just roads threaded between buildings connecting people and communities.

Over the last year, author and theatre producer Daniel Ingram-Brown has been working with local writers in a series of workshops to create characters and stories that will form a treasury of forest tales and artwork. Come along and see what progress has been made.

Simon Smith’s illustrations will be on display and you can read some of the stories already written. Make up your own characters and place them on the map of Leeds and then write your own story from the Forests of Leeds. Your work might get chosen to go into the treasury too!

This is a free event, no booking is required.
