Jane Pickering - St George's School, Windsor

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing us with such a fantastic day last Friday. I have had nothing but positive feedback from both pupils and staff. It was a truly magical experience! I look forward to seeing you back at St George's at some time in the not too distant future. (March 2016).

Matthew Edwards - Eagle House School

The Once Upon A Bus came to be part of the prestigious Children's Literature Festival at Eagle House School on 18 and 19 September 2015.  The magic and creativity of Arti and Matthew could not be faulted as they narrated and shared stories with children over the two days.  Boys and girls entering the bus are taken to a new world and the brilliance is that the bus evolves into whatever theme has been planned.

From the moment they assemble outside to watch the magical Bubble Man, the children are entranced.  Arti's characters are played out brilliantly and she leads them on a journey through the bus, reading and sharing and fully immersing children into the world of storytelling.  

We could not have been more delighted with the response from the children after their adventures on the Once Upon A Bus.  They have not stopped talking about their experience and there is no doubt that the bus helped make our Festival a huge success.  

If your children love stories they will adore the bus and I would urge you to let it park up at your school and create its magic.
