Point 27 on map

Princes Gardens

Join storytelling engineers at our pop-up sessions especially for children aged five and under.

Families with small children can take a moment of calm, get comfy, snuggle up and listen to fun, fascinating stories for early years engineers.

Our stories open up the world of engineering wonders, and all the storytellers are engineers themselves. Hear tales of a curious chocolate factory, a grumpy tortoise, a heroic seal whose whiskers save the day or a very special playground.

Accessibility - this event has step-free access via grass and paths.
