At Seven Stories’ Super Summer there’s something for the big kids (grown-ups included!) and definitely something for the little ones. Our Story Catchers will be dressed to impress and on hand to help you explore our breath-taking exhibitions and gather everyone together for a Super Summer Storytime that will delight all the family. Join them in the attic for a live show where you can take part to help create the story in our Comic Consequences performance. Wind down before you leave and check out some of the favourite Seven Stories recommended books for book lovers of all ages. Bring only your imagination, lets go! 

"The performers were fantastic and had us all in stitches."

Superheroes

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes - some wear costumes and uniforms, others blend in right next to us. Grab your cape, fireman’s helmet or Granny’s cardigan and come dressed up as your favourite superhero!

Hunt for heroes and villains in our brand new Comics exhibition then take part in our Comic Consequences live show. Head down to the Studio to create your very own comic strip, then join our Story Catchers for a super summer storytime. Laugh-out-loud at the epic battles of the unlikely heroes in The Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors. You’ve played the game, now hear the story of how it all began…

 

Supersonic

Hurry over to Seven Stories at the speed of sound so you don’t miss out on the fun as we get noisy exploring space travel, flight and supersonic booms! Are you an astronaut, a pilot or even an extra-terrestrial? Zoom into our Aliens Love Underpants installation, transform yourself into an alien and craft something supersonic.

Bring all the family together for a super read-along, shout-along storytime including Too Noisy! a heart-warming comedy by Malachy Doyle. Sometimes noisy is good!

 

Super Furry Animals

This week we are celebrating your favourite furry critters, large and small! Bring your teddy bear from home – or your special rabbit or favourite furry friend – and take them on a trip around our exhibition to meet book bears old and new.

Dress up as a bear, invent a furry story inspired by comic characters Bunny vs Monkey and settle down for a grrreat storytime. Have you seen a Snortle? Do you want to? If you're brave enough, join Mouse and his friends on The Great Snortle Hunt.
