Summer Activities 2021
Storytime and crafts
Every Friday from 23rd July join Storytime with Stacey on our Facebook page to listen to an animal themed story. Then, from the following Monday, for the whole week, visit the library a collect a craft pack with the activities for that week’s theme.
Missed the story online? Don’t worry, you can find a copy of the story in each library along with other books on the same animal topic. We’ve got 5 themes, one for each week of the school holiday –which will be your favourite?

From Tuesday 17th – Saturday 21st August our immensely popular theatre shows are back. Immersed in the wild, two acrobats dig, climb and lose balance in a joyful exploration of the nature in and around us. An engaging and atmospheric experience for all the family.
Families or groups sit in an individual tent which seats up to 6 people. Each tent costs £10. For more info go to www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/seasons
