Fairy TalesTiptoe over the bridge but don't wake the troll as you enter a magical Fairy Tale world at the Discover Children's Story Centre. Enter a world of giants, palaces, gingerbread houses and treasure caves in the immersive exhibition brought to life by illustrator David Litchfield, creator of the award-winning The Bear and the Piano. He has worked with author Ross Montgomery - the pair also collaborated on picture books The Building Boy and Space Tortoise - to create a tall tale about the magical characters who have stayed in the Three Bears' guest house before stepping into a fairy tale town and through into the woods. Children aged 0 to 8 and their grown-ups are invited to join in the palace disco with the musicians of Bremen, sit in a giant's footprint and help Jack win some magic beans. During the 45 minute session, which includes storytelling, you can search for treasures in the magical cave and stop by Grandma's caravan... if you dare.

 

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
