Join us for an opportunity to explore the value of reading and how to become a confident and inspiring storyteller through music, and multi-sensory activities. Participants will gain the knowledge and skills to share and inspire colleagues and families.  The event will feature various local partners and practitioners from Bolton and the Northwest, offering invaluable insights and tips on engaging children in reading.  The showcase will include guest speakers with expertise in Early Years Literacy.
