My 2 boys aged 7 and 9 attended a holiday programme with Chocolate Lantern and loved it. It's amazing how much they loved "telling" a story with puppets.

Nicci and Dawn are fun but quiet and patient at the same time and draw stuff out of the kids without them even knowing it's happening. This is a very unique child led programme and worth investing in.
