The Quest is a story about adventure…
After receiving a mysterious call during lockdown, a librarian and her housemates set out on a quest to discover the meaning of adventure.
Ever wanted to go to the moon, become a spy or an inventor? Then join the screen-free fun. Using everyday props, this imaginative audio play offers you a chance to join in with activities to become part of the story.
There are three 10 minute episodes to enjoy, each looks at the life of a real character and their adventure. It is a great way to become immersed in a story and experience a sense of travel from home.
‘My daughter and I loved the idea of being taken on a journey out of our kitchen with some great surprises along the way. Her eyes literally popped when she did the water and glass experiment all by herself! It was a welcome release from screens to delve into our imaginations through audio.’ Gillian Farrell, Mum to Maeve aged 5
