About Aladdin and the Stolen Stories

Introducing Aladdin and the Stolen Stories: A Digital Storytelling experience created by Bradford Literature Festival with Wrongsemble.

Children of all ages can experience the story of Aladdin like never before in this reimagined tale of adventure, magic and friendship filmed at recognisable locations across the city through a mix of live-action and animation.

Aladdin and the Stolen Stories is set in Bradford and told through five short episodes that will be free to watch right here on the BLF website. As the story unfolds, Aladdin and his friends discover a further five stories, the ‘Found Stories’ which will also be available to view for free online – you just need to find them first! Families can download a ‘Story Map’ for one of six community parks across Bradford. Follow the map to discover QR code posters hidden in the parks which will lead you to the hidden online episodes. For families who are shielding, we have also created a ‘Stay-at-Home Story Map’ so that you can discover the ‘Found Stories’ without leaving the house.

Accompanying the series is a fun and creative Activity Booklet, available to download for free right here, so that children can read and play along at home. Hard copies of the Activity Booklets will be distributed to all Bradford Primary Schools, with thanks to Bradford Council, and via the following distribution partners:

  • Better Start Bradford
  • Bradford Libraries
  • Bradford Care Service
  • The National Literacy Trust
  • Canterbury Imagine
  • St Luke’s Hospital
  • Bradford Royal Infirmary
  • Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank

For families and children without access to the internet, we have created DVD’s of all episodes that will also be distributed via the partners listed above.
