Tiny tots, pre-schoolers, school groups and their grown-ups are all invited to join in the fun at the Storybarn and explore the world around us through books, play and imagination.
From classic stories, family favourites and nursery rhymes through to storytelling adventures and sing-alongs, the Storybarn is an immersive reading experience for newborns up to children aged 8.
You can take a trip around the world in a hot air balloon, make friends with a robot or maybe go on a hunt to discover the stories of the park and the Mansion House!
All sessions include play, creative exploration and take-home crafts. Free tea or coffee is included for accompanying adults.
The Storybarn is a fully inclusive experience and all children are welcome. If you have any questions about facilities and access ahead of your visit, call us on 0151 729 2227.
During school holidays: Wednesday - Sunday.
