Are your family story fit? Can you create crazy characters and plot fiendishly difficult plots? You’re about to find out in this interactive story workshop. There will be mapping, drawing and lots of fun.

Create your own salty sea yarn in this interactive story workshop. Conjure up a character: a crab, dolphin or clownfish, give them a trusty sidekick and place the daring duo in their very own underwater adventure.

Will they outwit the evil hammerhead shark, save a merboy, or help a lost baby humpback whale? You decide! Come with ideas and enthusiasm and leave with your very own family story.

This event is suitable for ages 8+ and children must be accompanied by a fee-paying adult.

Tickets also include entry to the museum.
