Story time picnic

Our regular story time for children aged 6 months - 4 years and their grown-ups runs every week, including the school holidays when older siblings are welcome.


Join us to share a picnic basket filled with stories and rhymes. Mid-morning/afternoon snacks and drinks may be brought with you to snack while we story.


Every Monday at 10.30 and Friday at 14.00


Cost is £2 per family, redeemable against any book purchases made on the day.

Saturday Story time

Our family story time takes over the emporium one Saturday morning each month. Aimed at children aged 2-6 years old and their families, you can expect stories, games and activities with a theme that links to a classic book and introduces lots of new ones each time.
