  Weekend Story Time

Bring your little ones along to our weekly story time session every Sunday, 11-12pm. If you’re worried your kids might not be able to sit still for an hour, never fear! Run by the Drama Mill, our story time is an energetic session of communication, problem solving, teamwork, co-ordination and creativity.

Aimed at 3 to 7 years, but all ages welcome! It’s completely free, so the kids can enjoy a fun-filled and action-packed hour while you relax with a cuppa and one of our delicious cakes.
Go on, you deserve it!

day: Sundays
time:  11:00-12:00   
entry:  FREE

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no story time on Sunday the 5th or 12th of April. Story time will reconvene as usual on the 19th April.
