Dear Citizen! We have made a new country called The Children's Republic of Shoreditch. It is run by children and it has a postal service, a spy network and an embassy. We have been working on it for months now. We are making this country because we believe that children can be free and everyone is allowed to have fun. Please don't think we are just a bunch of kids mucking around, we are serious.

So runs the message from the Official Letter Writers to the Republic. Their endeavour is the Ministry of Stories' most ambitious project yet. The Republic will have an actual Embassy building entirely conceived of and designed by children, offering all the adventures outlined above. It will be open to members of the public every Saturday between 7th July-11th August, from 10am -- 4pm.

From this building, the children will run the affairs of their own state-within-a-state and look forward to meeting and greeting school and family visitors. For more, visit www.ministryofstories.org
