Just a quick one, but (in this household anyway) excitement is building…
…Stratford’s Discover Children’s Story Centre is due to reopen in ten days or so on 23rd July 2016, but you can already book tickets for the new Dr Seuss exhibition. Do it now! The whole place has undergone a major refurbishment whilst closed for a couple of months. And this article in the Guardian suggests it’s going to have been worth the wait.
The Cat and the Hat and friends will occupy the downstairs space with an interactive exhibition that will be open for over a year (so it better be good!). There’s going to be new artwork by fab Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell, on the first floor, plus a sorely needed new cafe. And there’s mention of new walkways and features in the garden, which was always a nice space.
That’s pretty much all the info I have for now. But as soon as we’ve been you’ll hear more! And if you get there before me, feel free to email us a review or share your thoughts in the comments section below.
