You can take part in a Story Quest in:

  • Ford Green Hall

Robbie Williams comes to Burslem Park!

Just the Ticket characters in Burslem Park

In Just the Ticket, the characters are frantically searching Burslem Park after losing their tickets to Robbie Williams’ planned homecoming gig at Port Vale stadium. They meet a dark-haired stranger in a Port Vale cap who seems very familiar…

Story Quest and coronavirus

Government advice and Sport England state that staying physically active during times of social distancing is important for both our physical and mental wellbeing. Story Quest trails enable you to follow government guidelines in local green spaces.

Story Quest also supports children to access important elements of the National Curriculum including:

  • English – developing reading and writing skills
  • P.E – physical activities
  • Geography – map reading skills and challenges

Story Quest advice

Please remember to:

  • Wash your hands before and after your completing a story, and then again as soon as you get home.
  • Make sure you stay two metres away from anyone who does not live in your house, even if they are friends or family.
  • Do not leave the house if you or any family members are showing any of the sign of the virus.
  • Don’t go into the playground – even if the characters in the stories do.
