Share A Story Month
Children, families and people living with dementia are creating and sharing stories during May’s #ShareAStoryMonth on buses, in care settings and at the Everyman.
We've partnered with Arriva North West and The Reader to provide opportunities for people across Liverpool to share and enjoy stories in celebration of the month long event. Here's what's happening and how you can get involved...
Share a Story competition
on social media
Tell us a story! What memories do you have of family days out? Who went? Where did you go? How did you get there? Everyone is encouraged to share their stories (or poems) on social media using #ShareAStoryMonth. The best entries have a chance of winning travel passes, theatre tickets and book tokens. Get more information here.
