Got a question?

Can I just come and visit the shop?

Not quite yet. We’re afraid that we are still closed to the public at our new Emporium of Stories on Ship Hill in Rotherham.  We hope to open at the end of March 2024.

You can also continue to buy your magical supplies with us online, and we can send these out to you by owl post or you can collect from us if you prefer.

Is there parking?

Parking for broomsticks and winged creatures can be found on the roof.

There are reasonable parking rates around the town centre, and park for free offers at weekends and seasonal periods. Mortals can find parking here.

Rotherham is a 10 minute bus/train ride from Sheffield centre.

How much are your after school and holiday programmes?


We want to make sure there are no barriers to children in being able to join us. If you are a family member who would like to support us to be able to do this, we would welcome donations.  You could also become a member of the B.F.G (Benefactors and Fairy Godparents) if you’d like to help.

Do you do activities for school trips/group visits?

Yes we do. We run a range of activities for school trips from story making to comedy writing for children and young people from age 7 to 18. To find out more click here.

I love what you do, how can I help?

Thank you so much for thinking about supporting us.

First and foremost, we are a small charity, and if you are able to make a donation, however small, you are helping us to change lives, one story at a time.  Here’s how you can donate.

You can also become a volunteer and give your time, help raise funds in our name or join one of our membership schemes.

Alternatively, you can simply buy your gifts from our physical or online shop and tell others to do the same.

However you choose to help us, we promise you’ll get just as much out of it as you give!

Many thanks.

We are committed to including all young people in all our workshops wherever possible. Please do get in touch if you think a young person hoping to attend a workshop would need anything specific from us that isn’t covered.

Our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of young people and unfortunately there may be times when our facilities and capacity can’t adequately meet their needs. We are always looking to review and improve upon this.
