Manchester Literature Festival (MLF) are bringing some Grimm & Co. magic to Z-arts for this one off event, filled with imagination and creativity.

Grimm & Co is a charity aiming to change lives one story at a time. They support children and young people aged 7 to 18 with their confidence and skills around creativity and writing. They work with artists, provide one-to-one mentoring and devise exciting projects, which aim to spark children’s motivation to write and imagine world’s beyond their own reality…

Who better to partner with then than Manchester Literature Festival and the fabulous Z-arts?! Join them on 13th October for a fun afternoon spent stretching young imaginations. They invite you and your family to step into a magical world of wonder and enchantment. Along side inspiring storytelling there’ll be wand crafting, spell writing, and brewing up and designing the recipe for your own magical potion. Get ready to leave the mortal universe behind and step in to a world of magical sorcery.
