2020 marks 1,000 years since the UK’s first equality law, which laid the foundation for the progress that led to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate and discuss this significant millennial, the World Storytelling Café is bringing together storytellers, historians, and creators to explore the themes of equality, diversity, and compassion.
Your donations during this event will support youthforhumanrights.
In this episode we are joined by Rebecka Eriksson, a Norwegian artist and seamstress who has worked on commission for history societies, clothes stores, and even cafés. Rebecka will doubtless inspire you to #GetCreative with ordinary household objects, transforming them into beautiful representations of folklore, history, equality and diversity.
Better not tell the Venerable Bede what she’d do if she got her hands on his library, though…
After some medieval storytelling and a discussion with Rebecka, there will be a live Q&A with the audience who join us in the Café Zoom Room by clicking “Join story” at kingdom1000.com

To celebrate and discuss this significant event, the World Storytelling Café is bringing together storytellers, historians, and creators to explore the themes of equality, diversity, and compassion.
In this episode, we are joined by Manju Malhi, the voice of BBC Food and a veteran of many TV cookery programmes, to explore how you can celebrate equality through food. Manju is no stranger to this having popularised her unique “Brit-Indi” cuisine and developed the culinary skills of over 800 million viewers with her show Cooking Isn’t Rocket Science
If only a certain King Alfred had had the chance to learn from Manju 1,000 years ago…

For our very final Epic Tale of the school year we continue to celebrate the Kingdom1000 themes of inclusion and community, so will be bringing SEVEN Epic Storytellers together for a single incredible story!
Pauline Cordiner, Amber Lickerish, Usifu Jalloh the Cowfoot Prince, Giorgiana Popan, Andy Copps AND our regular tellers Janina and Chip – ALL coming together to share a tale starring Africa’s master of stories: Anansi the Spider!
Every weekend at Epic Tales posts a bonus video featuring your responses to our stories: your own stories, your attempts at our Epic Challenges and more. In return, we share the end of our most recent Epic Tale, The Golden Apple.
If you missed Part 1 of the Golden Apple, you can catch up here.
Yesterday, a gold apple promised good luck to everyone who followed the instructions. But it ended in the hands of a maid who couldn’t read – so she can’t follow the instructions! What will happen?
Young learners can find out so long as someone has sent some creativity our way!
Teachers and educators: find our podcast at Epic Tales for activities exploring the many learning outcomes in all the Kingdom 1000 stories, including numeracy, science, and PSHCE!
It’s nearly Kingdom 1000 Season: Celebrating 1,000 years since Knut issued England’s first equality law. But regal determination to help the masses certainly isn’t confined to England. Wales has some brilliant examples too, including this incredible tale from guest storyteller Cath Little.
Knut is the hero from Amber’s story last week. After you’ve enjoyed Cath’s telling, you and your young learners can compare her story with Amber’s.
You can also visit Epic Tales to see how many new words you’ve picked up without realising it. You may have even learned some Welsh!
Teachers and educators: follow the link above for resources exploring how to draw various learning outcomes from this story, including science and numeracy.
King Edmund returns from battle with the most precious of treasures: a gold apple that promises good luck – but only if you give it away to the person you love the most! So who should he give it to…?
Let your young learners enjoy this mesmerising tale while learning important areas of the curriculum at the same time – and they won’t even realise it.
And afterwards, Epic Storyteller Chip will set an Epic Challenge – a fun task that will also hit children’s literacy learning for the week!
Teachers and educators: Visit Epic Tales to hear teachers discussing the many other learning outcomes in this story, including numeracy and science.
In this week’s Epic Tales ‘Sharing Shpecial’, a poem sent in from a young learner was set to the music of an Anglo-Saxon lyre by Chip. Tune in to listen to Amber to conclude the story of The Eel Catcher’s Daughter.
Teachers and educators: Visit Epic Tales for more resources to use with this story, including numeracy and science.
