Bambam The Time Traveller by Storywise (Storytelling & Craft Programme)



Join us for a fun storytelling and craft programme suitable for families and young children!

Join storyteller Juriah Atan and play pretend with Bambam as he puts on his cardboard suit and brings you on a wonderful joyride of imagination around old Bedok. Hear the exciting folktale of The White Ants and the Great Flood told by his great-great-great-great grandmother and travel back in time to when Bedok was a rain forest and animal and trees could talk.

No seat belts or safety helmets required – just climb on-board, open up your imagination and expect a thoroughly jolly storytelling session! The fun continues after the performance with an engaging craft activity inspired by the story for registered participants.
