The Pumpkin

Pumpkin tent

Whilst building work takes place at our site on Pembroke Street, The Story Museum is on the road…with our glorious Pumpkin and our Little Shop of Stories.

The Pumpkin is a custom-made, lovely bell tent, which we’re taking out to schools, festivals and community settings. It can fit up to 30 people and you’ll find a range of story activities inside from live storytelling to cosy picture book sessions. Step inside and admire the beautiful Middle Earth inspired interior and enjoy a taste of Story Museum magic. And when space is at a premium our Little Shop of Stories, staffed by our skilled story practioners, can supply all your story needs.

Check out our appearances on the calendar below and pop along and say hello!

And don’t forget to take a look at our What’s on pages for details of events still happening on site, plus book now for Wish – this year’s Christmas Show taking place in Oxford’s Castle Quarter.

If you’re interested in hosting The Pumpkin or The Little Shop of Stories for an event that you’re running then do get in touch by sending an email to Jess.
