As we move into Tier 2 on Wednesday 02/12, the Box has a new timetable - again! Book via Happity...
Mondays: 10am @Walthamstow Trades Hall
Wednesdays: 10:30am online!
Thursdays: 10am @Walthamstow Trades Hall
Please read the following terms & conditions applicable to attending indoor sessions
15 children, plus carers/young siblings, will be allowed at each session. 1 adult per booking.
Sessions have to be booked online via Happity - no drop-ins allowed.
The Box and all props will be cleaned/disinfected before each session.
You will need to use the NHS test & trace app to sign into the venue.
Contact details will also be taken by Lottie, as required by the venue. These will ONLY be used for this purpose, and will be destroyed after 3 weeks.
Masks to be worn on arrival and anytime you move around the space.
Hand sanitiser will need to be used when you arrive and will be available to use again throughout the session.
Families will be spaced out using mats and cushions (cleaned before each session). Children will be encouraged to stay in their area where possible and return to it after moving around the space.
Adults will need to stay on their mat (where masks may be removed) throughout the session and not move around the space with their children. If children need help/younger siblings wander, masks need to be put on before moving off the mat.
Use of props by kids may be reduced/changed to ensure each child only touches their own prop.
If a session can't be held in-person (eg. sudden lockdown, Lottie self-isolating, etc.), it will be moved online. If this doesn't suit, you can transfer your booking to when sessions are back to normal.
LOTTIE HAS DONE EVERYTHING TO MAKE THE EXPERIENCE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE. PARENTS/CARERS & KIDS ATTEND AT THEIR OWN RISK.
(N16 - we're still working on a new venue. Watch this space..._
Thanks for bearing with us and helping us adjust to the new normal...
We currently run sessions in Walthamstow and Stoke Newington.

Look forward to seeing you!
Magic Box sessions are fun, interactive story sessions where kids help Lottie, a professional actor, create and tell a story, using the odd things she finds in her Magic Box.
Children follow a character into a themed adventure where they can role-play, move around the imaginary space - and sing songs! Each session involves listening, speaking and spatial awareness, and helps children understand simple instructions in a structured, yet fluid, environment.
The age range included in each session means kids of different ages take away different experiences from the session. The younger kids enjoy the actions, copying, singing, pretending - and the older ones enjoy these elements too, but also feel confident in contributing to the story.
Adults are encouraged to join in with their children, giving the kids confidence to explore the story and a chance for everyone to have fun and 'pretend' together.
Come along and try a session (all our sessions are drop-ins). Open the Magic Box...and play!
