Stomping dinosaurs, exploding volcanoes, bear hunts and bees, superheroes and porridge thieves, a magical forest, a stinky swamp, a wild wild wood and a Gruffalo, a place Where the Wild Things Are… welcome to Storytime.

Storytime runs from 1pm to 3pm every Saturday and is for children aged 8 and under*. With a different theme each week, it’s a mixture of storytelling and puppets,music, games, crafts and special events during school holidays.

The session is led by Jenny Lockyer, an experienced play worker and freelance
artist. Children must be accompanied by an adult but are welcome to join in the activities at their own pace in their own space, as well as having the pleasure of a delicious children’s menu.
