This Week in Idea Store

It’s Bank Holiday Monday and half term this week; did you notice! No home schooling this week so why not try the idea store website for some fun things to do. 
This week on Saturday 30 May we have a brain busting fun quiz for children as part of the half term activities and the run up to summer fun.  Your children can join in via zoom so you will need to help them log on and say hello at the start so you know they are safe. Details are on the children and families page. 

Storytime for under 5’s continue Monday-Friday and you can check previous days if you miss it. A new one goes up at 10.30am. Why not follow us on Twitter for a reminder and all the latest news.

If your children are bursting for new books to read why not check out our eBooks and audiobooks page and checkout what is available for children; there is a great variety of titles.

Shakespeare was caught up in a pandemic in his lifetime and now there is a new prize in his honour. Give it a go! This is a great new national initiative for older users  who are feeling creative. Have you tried painting or writing poetry or short stories while you have been lock downed? Check out this prize opportunity here King Lear Prizes  

There is some great theatre being streamed online at the moment with a chance to support the many theatres and groups that have been affected by lock down. 
Have a look at to see the amazing range of theatre you can stream to your PC or television.
