Storytelling: Elmer with Mama G

Join pantomime dame Mama G for stories and songs with a little help from David Mckee's iconic Elmer the Patchwork Elephant.

Get ready to sing, dance, laugh and celebrate being YOU at the Horniman this October half-term. These thirty-minute sessions of stories and songs are all about being who you want and loving who you are.

Mama G has been working with Andersen Press and sharing Elmer’s stories for the last three years. The books have taken her to major events including Hull’s Big Malarkey and Gloworm Festival, as well as libraries around the country in support of the Book Trust’s Summer Reading Challenge.

When she’s not hanging out with Elmer, Mama G shares her own stories at schools, theatres, nurseries, museums, prides and festivals all over the UK. She has told stories for Disney, HSBC, the South Bank Centre, Unicorn Theatre and even ZSL London Zoo. She also appears in pantomime every Christmas, as well as writing, directing and producing the panto at Stanley Arts in South Norwood and writing and directing the summer panto for Haven Holidays.

Mama G can’t wait for you to join her at the Horniman this October half-term!
