Inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia, Moominland Midwinter, our friends at Brambly Hedge and many more, The Storyhunters have created a magical Winter Wonderland at The Storybarn for families to explore and enjoy.

Join us for a part interactive theatre, part literature-based experience where you’ll all become Storyhunters. During Winter we’ll just be inside, so come in from the cold for an adventure in the heart of Liverpool’s Calderstones Park.


The Storybarn is an interactive story-centre for children to explore, share and discover a love of books and storytelling.

Located in the magical surroundings of Liverpool’s Calderstones Park, The Storybarn creates a thrilling world of imagination where children can embark on a literary adventure with live-reading from our friendly Story Hunters, lots of exciting crafts and games, and a giant slide!

Our indoor / outdoor (indoor only during Winter) public Storyhunters sessions run every Saturday and Sunday (more during school holidays). Tickets are available in person from The Reader Ice Cream Parlour, but sessions can sell out in advance, you can  pre-book your visit to avoid disappointment.

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. If you’d like to learn more about our schools packages and opportunities to become a Storybarn Member, visit the Schools section of our website.
