Wee Stories

Wee Stories is a non-profit-making theatre company passionate about storytelling. Founded by Creative Director Andy Cannon and General Manager Lara Bowenin 1995, all productions are designed to be a family experience that everyone can enjoy.

Wee Stories

The company is committed to producing accessible theatre for all, particularly for children under 12 and their families. It believes that positive involvement from an early age is key to an enjoyment, appreciation and engagement with theatre that lasts for life. Arthur, The Story of a King was awarded Best Children’s Show in the Scottish Theatre Awards at a ceremony held on 6 June 2004.

Wee Stories tour their shows widely to small, medium and large scale venues and schools throughout Scotland, England and Ireland, leaving audiences with the experience of a good story wherever they go.

The project

The project addresses a number of the key aims and objectives of Scottish Arts Council. It also contributes to a number of the Capital strategic priorities including:

  • improving the quality of arts provision
  • improving the facilities for younger children

The application was also a good example of a proposal which uses new technology to enhance an organisation’s artistic capabilities, and the new equipment will allow the company to work more flexibly when on tour.

Background and funding

In 2003, Wee Stories applied to the small capital grants scheme and were awarded a grant of £9,249 towards:

  • the cost of computers and related equipment
  • video equipment
  • a portable display screen
  • radio mics and sound equipment

This award represented 70% of the total project costs (£13,278) with partnership funding coming from Wee Stories own resources.
