Featuring Tomi Ogbaro and Sarah Finigan as the great, great, great, great, great grandchildren of the Brothers Grimm.


As Lockdown began, we were due to be on the streets of Croydon collecting stories from the local community for a performance of Grimms Collecting Agency for the Croydonites Festival. With their help we ended up creating the show online. We advertised for people to be interviewed and had an amazing response from all over the country. The Grimms met people on Zoom and listened to their stories about life under lock-down. We’ve put the whole thing together as a free online film, which can be found below. We’re very proud of it so do watch and let us know what you think.

Whilst making the show for Croydonites we also worked with the young people from Good Wolf People who sent in stories, poems, comics, and  songs about Croydon which Sabine and Reinhardt Grimm retold on the video below:
