About

Stone Age Story Time returns for more fantastical adventures through fiction in one of our caves! Children aged 5 - 11 will be led on a journey through story and picture books with our Stone Age storyteller.

The event will be held in Mother Grundy's Parlour unless there is inclement weather and we have to move it indoors. Please dress for the outdoors and wrap up warm.
In this brightly lit, wide cave, there will be stories about mammoths, caves, hunters and an opportunity to enjoy some new and classic books too! 

This will be a time to sit, listen to and stories from the Stone Age - both factual and fantastical! It's a great way to light the spark of imagination for children visiting this amazing place.

available on the day but spaces are limited so we advise booking an advance to ensure your child can take part.

Children's University members can earn 1 credit for taking part in this activity. Simply bring your Passport to Learning with you and our team will provide you with a CU code.
