Due to popular demand our Harry Potter Escape Room has returned! Can you escape Professor Snape’s Potion Study before time runs out? You and your fellow Hogwarts students have just 35 minutes to escape before You-Know-Who arrives.
This escape room is aimed at those aged 12 to 100 years, though younger participants are welcome as part of a group. Maximum group size of 6. Registrations required.
This event is now full.
Don’t miss out on our most popular kids event! The Teddy Bears Adventure is a fun, free event for kids aged 5-8. Come along for stories and activities designed especially for you and your soft toy! Registrations are required, so get in quick as spaces are limited!
The Great Escape is our summer reading challenge, for all ages! This year, we will be hosting a fun, free launch event for kids!
We will have face painting, a photo booth, and lucky dip prizes for kids present on the day! The Santa Parade starts at 2:00pm so come in early and have some fun at the Library before securing a great spot to watch the parade out front!
