It is no secret that we LOVE Seven Stories. I have been taking the children since they were tiny, in fact Luca's first visit was when he was about 3 weeks old!
We have been back lots of times, each time a new exhibition is unveiled we go back and have spent some lovely days exploring the museum.
Seven Stories celebrates its 10th birthday this year and it is currently closed as they are under-going a massive refurbishment and will open in July. We cannot wait to see all the changes and are really looking forward to going again.
In the meantime they have come up with an ingenious plan to take Seven Stories out on the road all over the region with various events . We decided to book up for the Story Party - Into The Woods event which was at Jesmond Dene.
What a great idea this is, it enables the children to experience the magic of Seven Stories but in lovely settings, Jesmond Dene in particular is a lovely place and the day we went happened to be nice weather so we took full advantage with a good run about in the park before hand.
Story Party on the road was really lovely. The room was filled with all sorts of flowers and cuddly woodland creatures for the children to investigate and the lady running the session was brilliant. She pitched it just right for the age aimed at and managed to keep their attention throughout. They even brought the lovely story telling chair along.
She read us two stories Owl Babies and Luca's all time favourite, The Gruffalo. It was so cute to see all the kids reciting the lines from the book word for word. There was lots of interaction including some really cute hand puppets and we played a few games to get everyone moving about.
What a lovely morning we had, thoroughly enjoyed the Story Party and as such have already booked up for the session in the half term holidays and looking at the Julia Donaldson one in June.
There are lots of different events happening, there is bound to be something that will appeal to you and your family. Visit Seven Stories on the road, you will have a great time.
