Who We Are

About

Sing a Book, a community interest company, was founded in 2014 to engage and develop children’s understanding of stories using the medium of original songs linked to books and musical theatre. 

Sing a Book provides a range of services to schools and communities that includes workshops, theatrical productions and merchandise.  Our theatre productions teaches about black history and broadens children’s knowledge of its link to British history, while promoting diversity and community cohesion. Our workshops and after-school clubs are now well established in a growing number of schools and educational establishments and they have been proven to raise pupils’ confidence, whilst improving their public speaking and writing skills.

It is our mission at Sing a Book to produce new and innovative workshops, theatrical productions and merchandise of the highest quality that are fun, engaging and encourages children to develop their creative skills and become life-long learners who make positive contributions to their communities.

Testimonials

From our Audience, Parents and Participants

“A wonderful telling of the inaccuracies of history with great songs. The importance of the contribution of African and Caribbean people is a vital thing to remember.”

Audience 1

Love the songs, well done singers. Glad to hear about history and how it was recorded.

Audience 2

Outstanding script, great black history…

Audience 3

Has given my daughter confidence and self-belief. It has allowed her the opportunity to form friendships and skills.

Parent 1

Amna loves being on stage. Anisa was a complete surprise. She is reticent with adults, so to see her speak out loud on stage was a revelation. I think she will have gained a lot of confidence from this experience.

Parent 2

Both girls have grown in confidence and have learnt and acknowledged their black history.

Parent 3

My favourite part was taking part and doing the singing and acting.

Participant 1

I liked it because it was about [confidence], it is Ok to be different.

Participant 2

My favourite part: Kids growing up in confidence.
