South Asian Stories at the British Library in July

28 July 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Discover stories from South Asia in this fun and creative workshop with Sita Thomas!

Sita is an experienced film and theatre maker and children’s presenter on Channel 5’s Milkshake!

From sheikhs to suffragettes, explore lives and stories from South Asia using games, play, and lots of noise in this fun and creative workshop.

Be inspired by some curious characters including an Indian nanny, abandoned at King’s Cross station with just £1 in her pocket; a man who set up a coffee shop; and the suffragette who campaigned for women’s rights!

The session is a free drop-in suitable for ages 5 to 11.
