Manchester Central Library Sunday Funday is set to ignite a passion for literature in children of all ages. This event forms part of the inaugural county-wide Festival of Libraries which celebrates the magic of these incredibly influential cultural spaces and their scope to transform lives through the written word.

So, be sure to head over to St Peter’s Square to enjoy the Manchester Central Library Sunday Funday. A trip to Central Library is sure to spark a life-long interest in books.

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.

So, be sure to head over to St Peter’s Square to enjoy the Manchester Central Library Sunday Funday. A trip to Central Library is sure to spark a life-long interest in books.

Please note that while the event runs from 12-4pm pre-booking is required due to ongoing social distancing measures.
