Come along and enjoy a wonderful experience as we bring story time to you from beneath the seven-metre replica of earth!

On Monday 23 August we will be reading Jasper's Beanstalk, by Nick Butterworth and Mick Inkpen: Jasper hopes to grow a beanstalk, but becomes discouraged when the bean he plants doesn't grow after a week. Find out what happens next and what adventures await.

On Wednesday 25 August one of the books we will be reading is The Snail & The Whale, by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler: A beautiful tale of an unlikely friendship, a tour of the world and a heroic rescue!

As well as story telling there will be plenty of opportunity for you to get involved with clapping along and reading as well as rhymes and actions.

This is a free to attend event but to manage numbers we ask all interested people to book their place.
