Discover's 10th BirthdayDiscover has been entertaining London families for 10 years and they're throwing a free weekend-long 10th Birthday Party to celebrate. The weekend celebrations include an interactive guided tour of the unseen nooks and dark crannies of Discover's building presented by award-winning theatre company Inspector Sands. Visual artist Kirsty Harris (The Good Neighbour) asks you to add your feather to the nest for a new take on the classic Ugly Duckling. DJ and spoken word artist Charlie Dark presents a remixed telling of The Tortoise and the Hare (Sunday only). Go along on Saturday afternoon and you'll discover who the surprise guest is.

 

About Discover Children's Story Centre

Discover is a fantastic storytelling centre in Stratford East. Story Trails and Garden Trails run frequently and vary from carnival costumes to Capoeira moves, from wizards and witches to pirates or plants. Some of the most effective and most used exhibits here are the simplest, such as a dressing up chest, or a puppet theatre. More about Discover Children's Story Centre
