The Storyhunters - New Discoveries

In 2018 The Storyhunters are in search of New Discoveries! We’ll be reading brand-new stories published in the last year, learning new things and embarking on exciting adventures with new Storybarn objects to inspire our own stories. What will you find?

Join us for a part interactive theatre, part literature-based experience where everyone becomes Storyhunters. During the colder months we’ll be indoors only, so come in for some fun 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.
