Welcome to Seven Stories
Save • Celebrate • Share
Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children's Books. We select original artwork and manuscripts - from first scribbles to finished books - to create our innovative exhibitions and popular events.
Seven Stories celebrates children's books. How books are made, where they come from and how we can enjoy and share them. It's a great day out for the whole family!
Seven Stories will be closed for refurbishment from Monday 20 April - Monday 20 July 2015. Click here to find out more.
Everyday is Story Time
We love sharing and telling stories - and there are thousands to choose from! Every day our storytellers captivate young and old with tales from our favourite books (10.30am, 12.30pm and 3.30pm). We bring books to life through playful activities and exhibitions, displaying real artwork and manuscripts from famous children's authors and illustrators.
Join in with creative craft activities and make your own special creations to take home seven days a week.
While our visitor centre is closed we will still be bringing the magic of children's books to life across the North East. Click here to download our On the Road Programme.
An Annual Pass is great value, you can visit Seven Stories as many times as you like! Pass holders are the first to hear about special events and offers. Click here to find out more.
We need your help to bring the joy of reading to as many children as possible. Seven Stories is a charity - all the money we raise is used to save, celebrate and share the wonderful world of children's books.
