About.

Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children’s Books. They work with schools in many ways including school trips, book subscriptions, author and illustrator visits (digital or in-person), facsimile hire, visits or residencies from their team, and joint projects and research.

Seven Stories schools trips are 2 hour sessions with one hour in their unique gallery spaces and a one hour workshop with their dynamic Story Catcher team. Your group will take part in an interactive and imaginative led-tour of their exhibition where children will go on a sensory and immersive journey, followed by a workshop inspired by one of the books featured in the gallery. The sessions are all linked to the theory that there are seven basic plot types.

They can tailor school trips to a particular book or theme for additional cost.
