Discover is the UK’s first Story Centre for children aged 0-11 and their families. Their aim is to create a love of language, literature and stories.
At the heart of the centre, their purpose-built Story World and Story Garden are creative play spaces designed to inspire children’s curiosity and imagination. Their team of dedicated Story Builders guide children and families through space and encourage them to create their own stories for Hootah, their resident baby space alien, to send back to his planet Squiggly Diggly, which has run out of imagination.
Changing once every six months to a year, their interactive exhibitions immerse families in the world of their favourite authors, from Oliver Jeffers to Michael Rosen and Dr Seuss. Throughout the year they invite much-loved and up-and-coming authors, illustrators, poets, musicians, artists and storytellers to run exciting workshops and take part in their annual The Big Write Children’s Literature Festival.
