Seven Stories

About

Some people say there are only seven stories in the world but a thousand different ways of telling them. Seven Stories is about the thousand ways. This unique charity has recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary after opening its doors in 2005.

Seven Stories is committed to preserving literature heritage for children after the 1990’s saw most of Britain’s most influential literature being sold to international collectors.

A great day out for the whole family, visitors can explore the amazing world of children’s books where magical words and pictures are brought to life through exhibitions, activities and special events.

Explore your own creativity through writing, illustration and crafts or uncover a world of storytelling with dressing up and dramatic fun in the Seven Stories theatre. The Seven Stories Visitor Centre also includes an independent children’s bookshop and Café with a great selection of home cooked food.

Find Seven Stories tucked under the Byker Bridge in Newcastle’s Ouseburn Valley, the perfect storybook setting.

Seven Stories is a registered charity number 1056812. Supported by Arts Council and Newcastle City Council.
