What’s the story?

BSIS-bobs-bikes-webBob sells bikes…. or rather Bob owns a second hand bike shop but doesn’t sell many bikes. Bob’s world is turned upside down when he meets Betty, a poet and writer who has volunteered to help Bob run his shop. Betty might not know a lot about bikes, but she does know how to tell a good story and soon she encourages Bob to see the bikes not just as pieces of metal and plastic, but as stories waiting to be told.


Meet the cast

IMG_2688Take a look at the wonderful cast we’ve assembled for ‘Bike Story in schools’. They’re an experienced and professional bunch of bike actors: Molly, Chopper, Classique, Postie and Daisy. We’ll be finding out about their stories through the performance and trying out ways of telling our own stories with pupils in the workshops that follows… Actors Colin and Jenna don’t do a bad job either.
