The countdown to Christmas is on and we have a whole lot of festive fun instore to keep your little ones entertained this month! Be sure to drop on by our Baby Book Social in our cosy bookshop where one of our story tellers will introduce a fabulous book each week for your baby, running every Monday at 3pm (term time only) and perfect for little ones under 1. Not had much sleep lately? We have a range of coffees (with a range of milks too) to choose from plus a cheeky well-deserved traybake treat with your name on it!

Don’t miss our immersive exhibition experience - Shifter of Shapes which explores th beautiful nature book The Lost Spells. Step into nature, witnessing its power to amaze, console and bring joy - we've put together some ideas for Introducing little ones to Shifter of Shapes so you can get the most our of your visit.

Keep the winter chill at bay and join us for what is possibly the best meal of the day topped off with a wonderful visit from Mrs Claus herself – the special breakfast includes storytime, activities, and themed crafts. Or if you’d like to catch the man in red instead, tuck into a delicious spread of festive food for the most magical afternoon tea of the year – Afternoon Tea with Santa - followed by a cosy visit to the grotto. Pop to our specialist children's bookshop afterwards to top up on your Christmas shopping.

Say goodbye to 2021 and welcome 2022 with our End of Year Party! Explore how New Year is celebrated around the world, learn all about customs and traditions, enjoy themed crafts and games, and don't forget your dancing shoes! We may be saying goodbye to 2021 (not just yet!) but the festivities don’t end there – every Wednesday throughout January (11am) get set to have a pawsome time with a host of stories and activities with our Snowdogs Story Party!

What a festive month we have in store - we look forward to seeing you soon with your little ones! Head to our homepage to see everything on offer and to book your tickets. 

PS. Fancy avoiding the crowds and doing your Christmas shopping under the twinkly lights in our bookshop with a mince pie and a hot chocolate instead? We're holding Early Evening Shopping events throughout December - see you there!
