Students were treated to a truly interactive Christmas story at Sutton Community Library. The event was led by our Digital School team, who penned an original story especially for the event.
Students settled into their chairs, the lights were dimmed and the story began. In the tale we followed busy Dad, Howard on Christmas Eve as attempted to buy Christmas presents for his family in the bustling shops. Simon Gale, Creative Director of the Digital School read the story aloud and his team brought it to life with a series of sensory experiences.
A screen played out a bus tour through the festive streets of London, Christmas scents filled the air, students sampled Christmas beverages and handled snow, fairy lights and Christmas tree branches. They even helped Howard choose a perfume and a new jumper for his wife by smelling a variety of scents and touching soft fabrics. At the end of the performance their eyes lit up with a beautiful light show.
