The Central Library building is as breathtaking as it is iconic – a must for intrepid city centre explorers of all ages, showcasing a vast archive and interactive displays along with the usual books available for loan. At this special event, families can expect a rich mixture of theatre performance, craft activities, and a live workshop with bestselling children’s author and illustrator Kristina Stephenson.

With a focus on ‘mystical maps and magical monsters’ Stephenson is primed to transport your little ones on an imaginative adventure following a mystical map which heads from the world of  ‘Sir Charlie Stinky Socks’ to the doors of ‘The Museum of Marvellous Things’ accompanied throughout by music, puppets, props and puzzles. What’s more, materials will be available to get crafty and create a unique magical monster puppet to take home.
