King Athelstan

About the show

Story Storks presents King Athelstan, the Historically Funny tale of King Athelstan from boy to King.

Join Story Storks on a romp through history, as we learn all about Saxon King Athelstan. We witness King Alfred the Great gifting a young boy a purple cloak (is that why the local school have purple uniforms?) We train with Aunty Ethel to fight Vikings, and finally, we march north and put our skills to good use against the Viking hoards!

This historically accurate yet totally hilarious immersive theatre show is full of local history to keep the whole family entertained. Kids (and willing adults) get to join in on the wild adventures of a real King who was crowned right here in Kingston.

About the company

Story Storks is a Kingston based theatre company who create theatre and immersive theatre for children from 2 upwards. A not for profit, our work improves early years literacy, teaches Kingston Kids local history and will soon be telling stories to help shape the narrative on climate change. Now in our 13th year, we're a well established local favourite, and look forward to telling even more stories for at least another 13 years!
