The Storybarn is a magical, multi-purpose family space at The Reader’s home in Calderstones Park.
Perfectly positioned in the heart of the park (and crucially, next to the Ice Cream Parlour), the Storybarn is a one-of-a-kind reading retreat for children and their grown-ups.
Little ones can let their imaginations run wild, discovering new stories to share, and taking part in unique experiences, alongside arts and crafts.
We love a good party here too, so celebrate your next birthday with us for a truly memorable experience.
The Storybarn is a fully inclusive experience and all children are welcome. If you have any questions about facilities and access, call us on 0151 729 2227.
