Storytelling Takes Flight: Storytelling Course for Parents and Carers at National Museum of Flight

The National Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield is offering parents and carers the chance to become storytellers.

Are you the parent or carer of young children?

Gain more confidence and obtain transferable skills by attending a fun and educational course, led by professional storytellers John and Noreen Hamilton.

Storytelling isn’t just about reading fairy stories, storytelling skills are a huge advantage in all our communications; at home, in the workplace and in our social interactions.

Over 20 weekly sessions, participants will hear stories, learn how to tell tales, stories from real life, brand new stories and their own personal stories. Sessions will include regular craft activities and games for the children attending.

The sessions will be held at the National Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield, East Lothian.  Participants will have the chance to see the Museum’s aviation collections and access stories from some of those who have been part of Scotland’s flying traditions. Resources will be shared on a dedicated Facebook group with participants.

The project will culminate with a celebratory event where the new storytellers can share their newly acquired skills with friends and family.
