Welcome to a patchwork land of picture books, nursery rhymes and traditional tales for the very young.

Set off to a land of picture books, nursery rhymes and traditional tales for the very young. Explore five story-themed zones where you can go on a Bear Hunt, discover Traction Man’s under-sink world, relax in the Night Safe, ride on the Story Bus and enjoy Winnie and Wilbur’s miniature theatre.

Sessions start with a special song together, followed by the week's featured story told by one of our Story Guides with lots of opportunities for joining in. You'll then be free to explore the five-story-themed zones for the rest of the session before a final story and goodbye song.

Sessions in Small Worlds also include a craft activity. On Fridays this activity will be messy play so please dress accordingly!

Staying safe
The gallery is very well ventilated with a complete exchange of fresh air every 6-10 minutes, windows and skylights and bifold doors at the front that will be open whenever the weather allows (so do put on an extra layer on chillier days!)

The gallery and story props are thoroughly cleaned between sessions.

Small Worlds is a story-play gallery particularly designed for pre-school children. Please note that this is a structured session so please make sure you arrive in good time for the start time printed on your ticket.

Running time for a Small Worlds session is 60 minutes.
