Events at Seven Stories to Book Now 




As always, Seven Stories has a lovely programme of events planned for the Easter Holidays. The events in this section are usually referring to the event only and you will need to buy a ticket or bring your annual pass to enjoy the rest of Seven Stories.

4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 15 & 17 April - The Gruffalo Story Workshop at Seven Stories - click here to book

Play, sing and enjoy a special craft activity with the little brown mouse as part of this interactive storytelling of what is one of the best children's stories ever told (in my humble opinion). Tickets are a bargain at just £3 each.

Why not buy a ticket to enjoy the rest of Seven Stories and you can visit the new Where Stories Come From exhibition which features original artwork from The Gruffalo (and more).

9 & 11 April -  Little Mermaid Afternoon Tea - click here to book

Tickets for this event are a steal at just £7 per person. Guests can enjoy a themed afternoon tea with sandwiches, mini scones, cake and a drink. Children can also enjoy a craft activity and ice their own biscuit. Finally, the Little Mermaid herself will make an appearance.

17 & 18 April - Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea - click here to book

Again, tickets are just £7 per person for this event which includes a themed afternoon tea with sandwiches, mini scones, cake and a drink. Children can enjoy a craft activity and ice their own biscuit. The Mad Hatter himself will join in with tea and nonsense.


Drop-in Events at Seven  Stories 




The following events are available to enjoy on a drop-in basis and unless otherwise stated, included with regular admission / a Seven Stories annual pass.

New Where Stories Come From Exhibition at Seven Stories

A brand new Where Stories Come From exhibition opens on 4 April. The exhibition explores the idea that every story ever told follows one of seven basic plots. The theme can be enjoyed with lots of interesting items including a typewriter used by Enid Blyton and a notebook featuring the first-ever draft of The Gruffalo.

This is also your last chance to visit the Elmer and Friends exhibition which ends at the end of April

4 - 19 April - Easter Egg Hunt

Pick up a free trail from reception and find seven eggs hidden around Seven Stories. Can you work out which creatures laid them? Find out more here. 

11 & 13 April - Easter Bonnet Making 

Pop into the Seven Stories bookshop and have a go at creating your own Easter Bonnet or Hat. Show it off in the grand parade at 11:30am and 2:30pm. Find out more here. 

Daily throughout the Easter Holidays - Where Stories Came From Mini Exhibition Tours 

Mini exhibition tours are available during the school holidays at 11:30am on weekdays and 11:30am/2:30pm on weekends (excluding Easter Sunday). Tours are included with admission and are led by one of the fabulous Story Catching team. Find out more here. 


4 - 19 April - Whitehouse Farm Easter Egg-stravaganza

We absolutely love Whitehouse Farm and Easter is a brilliant time to visit. You do not need to pre-book (although it is a little cheaper if you do), it is somewhere you can spend the full day and it is a brilliant option for all weathers as there is plenty to see and do inside and out. I love that Whitehouse Farm has a cafe and indoor and outdoor picnic areas too.

Check out our guide to visiting Whitehouse Farm here. 

Activities included with admission over Easter include:

  • Meet The Easter Bunny
  • Easter Games
  • Bottle Feed Lambs 
  • Snuggle A Easter Bunny
