Welcome to a patchwork land of picture books, nursery rhymes and traditional tales for the very young.
Discover new stories and enjoy old favourites as well as many different ways to play. Start outdoors by hunting for that famous bear. Meet a jolly postman. Climb aboard a story bus. Tend to the musical flowers in Lulu’s lovely garden.
Step into the kitchen and you’ll find surprises in the fridge and a secret underwater world under the sink. And into the bedroom for colourful costumes, boxes of story toys and regular storytellings on a most enormous bed.
Then relax on a cloud in the Night Safe and look up at moons and stars, rockets and spaceships, and some baby owls who think a lot.
On term time weekdays each two-hour session includes an optional activity session led by our Story Guides, themed on the week's selected picture books.
Tuesday: All Aboard the Story Bus! Music & movement
Wednesday: Who's in the Kitchen? Messy play
Thursday: Who's on the Bed? Character play
Friday: Down in the Garden Crafty play
Small Worlds is a story-themed play space particularly designed for pre-school children.
