About

Psst! Do you believe? This winter pop on your pyjamas and head to Seven Stories for a magical journey and help bring the classic Christmas story The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg to life.  Enjoy an interactive telling of this beautiful tale, snuggle with a warm drink and tasty treat, then create a clever festive cardboard craft to take home to decorate your tree. Grab your golden ticket at arrivals and climb aboard the imagination train to see where the story takes you.

To make it an unforgettable family day out each ticket includes a Story Workshop; an edible sweet treat from Ouseburn's Dreamworld Cakes; a milky hot chocolate or warm milk; a special cardboard craft activity designed by cardboard wizard Lottie Smith; 10% discount in the Seven Stories bookshop, where you can buy your own copy of The Polar Express to relive the magic at home, as well as free entry to the visitor centre.
