The travelling circus of stories returns for another year to dollop a dose of storybook magic to The Family Area. Our programme this year is all about celebrating the world we live in through stories, pictures, dance and drama. From the Indian Himalayas to the bottom of sea, come and grow your own story, become an eco-warrior, collaborate on our gigantic handprint collage, doodle your dreams make your own world and listen to stories about our animals, mountains, oceans and plants. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
