What’s Coming Out Of The Box Presents: The Quest

‘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.

Each 10 minute episode 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.

This original story was written especially for 5 to 10 year olds and their family. It features original sound design and music.

This project was supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It was also supported by Applause Rural Touring.

My kids loved listening to ‘The Quest’. It transported them to a place far away from our lockdown and home schooling. They were truly immersed and their minds felt filled to the brim with excitement and a longing to find out more about the topics and the science. I loved the fact that it was very easy to set up and that it was fully screen free.
