Taking place on Thursday, March 14, the first event is the Under The Sea sensory rhyme time for young children aged 0 to three and takes place from 10am – 12.30pm. The second event, Mini Monsters, runs from 4.30pm to 6pm and features a range of craft and story time for children aged four to seven. Places are limited and must be booked in advance via the Storyhouse website.

Bookworm Events has organised all aspects of the event in conjunction with Storyhouse. The Bookworm team has also been fundraising in the form of pub quizzes and bake sales at the University, to fund this free event.

Activities at Under The Sea will include rhyme time, a sensory den, messy play and hand print art. Activities at Mini Monsters include an interactive story time, opportunity to create your own monster mask, monster headband making and finger puppets.

Nicola Haigh, Communities Manager at Storyhouse said: “Having students run public activities in Storyhouse is a great way to showcase the talent of the brilliant students training on the University of Chester’s Event Management course. They can put their theory into practice at Storyhouse; this is a true reflection of our vision that this house is your house.”

Megan Hood from Bookwork Events, said: We wanted to create events that were both educational and fun for the children in our local community and what better place to do an event like this than at Storyhouse! Our social and educational objectives to get children reading and having fun with their parents align perfectly with Storyhouse’s objectives to fill Storyhouse with activities run by the community, for the community.”

Both events have limited spaces, you can book your free place at the Storyhouse website https://www.storyhouse.com/event/bookworm-childrens-activities
