Story Quest is a series of six free story trails for families to complete this summer in Burslem and Tunstall. Families can join characters Josh, Yasmin, Grandpa Matt and Valiant the puppy as they hunt for treasure, meet local celebrities and travel back in time.

Every time you complete a story trail, you can claim a special prize!

The stories are written for primary school aged children to read together with their parents/guardians and the walks are suitable for all levels of fitness.
