Storytime: Joyous Japan

All ages are welcome at Fort Nelson, so why not join us, every third Wednesday of the month, with under 5s for our free Storytime session in the galleries featuring popular children’s tales. With a different theme each month, children are invited to gather around for a fun and interactive storytelling experience where they can look, listen, play and have fun with props. Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes and includes two engaging stories and a mixture of toys designed to provide hands on fun for young children. Café 1871 is open daily from 10 am – 4 pm for light bites and drinks and food warming and baby change facilities are available on site. Sessions start at 11am on the third Wednesday of every month. Free, no need to book, just drop in.
