I take part in many community events such as Family Fundraisers and markets but one of the most fun things I do is Storytime at libraries. I want to do my part to help keep libraries alive and buzzing. I believe libraries are important places, not just for children but for everyone.
I enjoy doing Storytime with parents involved as I love to see how they react to my stories too. I'm pleased to say they are as popular with parents as they are with children and this makes me very happy indeed!

I have had successful workshops, including a Christmas Special, with the Polka Children's Theatre. Learning and participation are at the heart of my work, encouraging children to explore and develop creatively. My Circus Storytime, in particular, works well in the children's theatre environment, as the theatrical theme is strong throughout.
Fairs and Festivals
I also perform my Storytime at fairs and festivals. As well as doing my sessions with the children, I have a stall. Children can take part in my workshop and visit the Music Audio Stories stall afterwards.
Storytime highlights include workshops at The Barbican Centre, inside the beautiful chapel at the Brompton Annual Open Day, Pyjamarama for BookTrust, at Redmond Community Centre for the Hidden River Festival, and this year I am looking forward to Storytime at one of the largest events in London, MCM London Comic Con!
Absolutely amazing. Initiative to get children interested in reading. The music adds a new dimension to storytelling. Full of fun and interaction for all ages.

Anna Christina is such a brilliant advocate for the power of stories and music. The children have so much fun and really respond to the activities.

Expressive, interactive, and exciting for all. The children loved taking part during the session. I highly recommend this style of storytelling.

Children and parents alike are delighted with the stories and related crafts. It's always a pleasure to host one of her sessions.

These activities are not only fun but also aid the child’s physical and emotional development. Anna Christina’s sessions are well planned and expertly delivered.
