There’s nothing better than a book to capture a kid’s imagination and our Tales on the Tyne storytelling sessions will keep your little one entertained all summer.

We’re kicking off this year’s Tales on the Tyne on 24th July with a very special guest – former BBC Radio host and children’s author Alfie Joey – before the amazing Seven Stories team take over for the rest of the summer. Expect fun, great stories and lots of laughter!
