The centre’s resident storyteller Hemi Yeroham has been on hand every day to regale kids with their favourite tall tales and fairy stories.

A who’s who of guest authors and stars have also been attending featuring names like Sid Sloane from Cbeebies and Chris Bradford, author of the Young Samurai series.

Events will run every day until the finish of the Big Summer Read from 11am to 4pm.

Interactive storytelling treasure hunts, games, story-writing events, book exchange, library corner and a host of lovable characters will be on hand.
