Story time sessions for our younger visitors

We welcome visitors of all ages at Fort Nelson and every third Wednesday of the month we have an interactive story time especially for the under-5s.

Each session lasts approximately 60 minutes and includes stories and assorted toys designed to engage and provide hands-on fun for young children. There is no charge for these sessions and no need to book, just drop in.

Special First World War themed story time sessions

Whilst “Poppies: Wave” is on display we will have some specially themed storytime sessions with Bluebird the Storyteller.

Her stories are based on the letters of George Weston, a young man of 18, who joined up in 1914 and began his training at Fort Nelson. Join Bluebird for a short tour of the Fort and hear George’s story unfold as you discover exciting things left behind by the story’s characters.
