Storytelling was brought to life by music for youngsters and their parents at Fairfield and Harpur Hill Sure Start Family Centres.

Musicians from the Northern Chamber Orchestra told the story of ‘Stanley’s Stick’ by John Hegley with specially-composed songs, music and actions.

The sessions were organised by Buxton Festival as part of their Outreach Programme.

Development Manager Claire Barlow said: “We were delighted to do our first early years projects in Buxton sure start centres. The kids seemed to love the story.”
