Grimm & co

Changing Lives, One story at a time

Grimm & Co is a magical story destination based in the heart of Rotherham town centre. Our Apothecary to the Magical has currently slipped into the fantastical realm, and for a short while, our range of potions, hexes and accessories (for mortals and magical folk alike) can only be found on the web. Our elves are busily packing and shipping online orders by owl, so you can still buy your wild schemes, evil plots and kitchenware from us.

Behind a secret portal, we are also a children’s literacy charity, providing free creative writing workshops to children and young people in Yorkshire and beyond. We champion the writer in every child, raising confidence, self belief and skills, changing lives, one story at a time.

We will reappear in a new magical home soon, but in the meantime, we are continuing to deliver creative writing workshops to help young people unleash their imaginations, grow their confidence and become published authors. These are currently taking place in the virtual realm, but we hope to take our magical offering on the road very soon.
As well as visiting our online store, your mini mortals can take part in lots of creative writing activities online at, and you can join our team at Grimm & Co to change children’s lives one story at a time! Our volunteer mentors encourage confidence, creativity and imagination while developing writing skills in a unique, fantastical environment. No experience required. Just bags of enthusiasm!
