CHILDREN and staff at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Chipping have organised a storytelling festival.

It takes place on Sunday and is the sixth celebration of its kind in the village.

The streets will be filled with fairytale characters, clowns and circus performers, with a ringmaster leading a circus parade.

The event begins at noon.

Headteacher Chris Stringer said: “Oral storytelling is such a valuable skill to share amongst communities.”
