The Story Vending Machine, a breakthrough of perambulatory narrative technology, roams various locations during KidsFest dispensing custom-made fictions, fables and flights of fancy for all ages!

Using the audience's suggestions to weave wholly original tales to delight and entertain, not even the Storyteller knows where the story will go next. Will you get an adventure? A spooky story? A fairy tale? Or a little bit of everything?

Improviser Jeff Clark debuted the Story Vending Machine at the 2018 World Buskers Festival and is delighted to be bringing this family favourite back to the streets of Christchurch. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open, and get ready to let your imagination create something unique!

If there are any cancelled due to weather conditions check out the KidsFest Facebook page for pop-up appearances in the Christchurch City Council Foyer.
