Storytime Sessions at the Fort

Storytime Sessions


Storytime sessions for our younger visitors

All ages are welcome at Fort Nelson and every third Wednesday of the month we have an interactive Story Time session, especially for the under-5s. These free sessions take place in the galleries and feature popular children’s tales.
With a different theme each month, children and parents are invited to gather round for an engaging storytelling experience.

Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes and includes two themed stories and assorted toys designed to provide hands-on fun for young children.
