Why we need Friends

"Seven Stories is a place that celebrates books - it’s as simple as that - it's about how books are made, where books come from, how children can get involved in books. It's fun and it's wonderful and I love it." Michael Rosen

Friends of Seven Stories are passionate about children’s literature and support what we are doing to save it and the ways we share its magic with new young readers. The money you give will directly fund the work we do:

  • acquiring and caring for outstanding works of art and important manuscripts
  • creating inspirational exhibition and learning programmes
  • in the community to encourage a love of books and reading

As a Friend you'll be an integral part of Seven Stories, seeing what we do and how we work close up.
