The fabulous folks at Z Arts bring you storytelling with a taste of one of this year’s big family hits, A World Inside a Book – Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures. The exhibition celebrates the much loved classics from children’s author, Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, in a playful and fully immersive experience.

Whether you’ve been to the exhibition or not, the whole family will love these magical storytelling sessions, held at Manchester Arndale this Halloween.
