Take yourself and your family or friends on a storytelling adventure by the Sun on Sunday 14 or 21 August.

Come along to a storytelling session:

Join expert storyteller Marion Leeper who will share folktales and legends about the Sun from cultures around the world. Joining her will be illustrator Tonka Uzu who will help you get creative inspired by Marion's stories.

Warm up your imagination as you explore a wide range of books available for all the family… there will also be some pretty awesome Oliver Jeffers' activity sheets too!
