Storytellling on Moot Green

Join us for a fantastic children’s storytelling event. Booking necessary.
To celebrate the end of carnival week, Aldeburgh Museum is hosting three afternoons of storytelling for children of all ages.  The Yarnsmith of Norwich will entertain and enthrall his young audience with tales of lazy long-limbed lads and poor penniless pedlars, all set under a colourful, medieval style tent on the Moot Green.  Booking is essential and tickets for a 30 minute session (£3 per child including one free entry to the museum) will be available online by clicking on the button right or in person at the museum desk in the Moot Hall.  All children will need to be accompanied by an adult. For all enquiries please contact: learningofficer@aldeburghmuseum.co.uk or 01728 454666.
