The Storybarn

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

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 Calderstones Park, The Storybarn creates a thrilling world of imagination where children can embark on a literary adventure with live-reading from our friendly Storysharers, lots of exciting crafts and games, and a giant slide!

The Storybarn is open to the public from Friday to Sunday – feel free to drop in and join in the fun or book your visit now to avoid queues on the day.

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 Groups section of our website.
