Story time Thursdays

Once upon a time... there was a new story to discover every Thursday in the Woodland Walk, with fun and adventures for all.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Bring your little ones to our weekly story times every Thursday during the school summer holidays. Listen to our volunteers reading a selection of stories aloud in the outdoor Woodland Walk. There'll be new stories to inspire new adventures and old favourites for comfort and relaxation. Every story time will bring fun and shared pleasure for all ages.

Please note that this activity is weather dependent and may be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or high winds. Please check the website on the day or telephone the property. Children must be accompanied by parents/guardians during these sessions.
