Fairy Tales Immersive Exhibition
Fantasic For Families
  • In addition to Session Pass.

Once upon a time there were three bears, and they owned a little Bed and Breakfast in the forest…

Step into a fairy tale town and through into the woods to discover a world of giants, palaces, gingerbread houses and treasure caves.

Trip trap over a bridge (but watch out for the troll!), join in the palace disco with the musicians of Bremen, sit in a giant’s footprint and pop into town to pay a visit to Anansi’s newsroom. Visit the market and help Jack win some magic beans, search for treasures in the magical cave, and stop by Grandma’s caravan (why is her face so furry…?)

A visitor’s map will help you explore the Fairy Tale world, with plenty of play and things to see and do for all ages.

Our new immersive exhibition has been designed by Discover with illustrator David Litchfield, creator of the award-winning The Bear and the Piano, and author Ross Montgomery, who has worked with David on the picture books The Building Boy and Space Tortoise.

For 0-8 year olds and their grown-ups. Exhibition sessions last 35 minutes.

In order to maintain social distancing, a story will no longer be included with your immersive exhibition visit. We will be telling stories on our Story Worlds, where there is more space to keep a safe distance.

Numbers in each session will be very limited so there is plenty of space for everyone to play and explore our magical Fairy Tale world.

  • Theatre, Literary

it's an immersive world of play and storytelling.
