Teddy Bears’ Picnics – Saturday 17 August

Teddy has lost his favourite story somewhere in Calderstones park! Can you help him find it?

The Storybarn would like to invite all tickly teddy bears aged from 0-8 and their families to join us on our first ever series of teddy bears’ picnics! There will be time to play and share stories in The Storybarn, with creative crafts for busy little bears, then it’s off to the meadow for outdoor games and the chance to share your picnic! 


Located in the heart of of Liverpool’s Calderstones Park, The Reader Storybarn is an imaginative play space dedicated to sharing the delights of reading with young children and their families. The Storybarn exists to spark a life-long love of books and reading, and an unending curiosity to explore the astonishing worlds of our imaginations.

Throughout the week we welcome school groups to enjoy a storytime adventure in The Storybarn and the surrounding park, incorporating National Curriculum targets in all our activities.
