The King who is Confused by Feelings

Meet the King who has banned feelings and colours from his Kingdom. He finds feelings confusing so he says no one can laugh or cry when he’s around; feelings of happiness, sadness or anger are not allowed. He wants everything and everyone to be grey and gloomy all day long so he’s banished colours as well. A group of young, brave adventurers decide this can’t be right so go on a mission to collect the missing colours and feelings and bring them back to the Kingdom.

A fun and interactive workshop for 3 - 5 year olds and their grown-ups led by Joanna Parkes.
