We’ve got a fun packed Easter holiday planned in Middlesbrough libraries and community hubs.

We’ve teamed up with Middlesbrough Environment City to hold den building workshops to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five adventure stories.

Create and decorate a fantastic den in these free sessions – places are limited so must be booked and are suitable for children aged 5-11. Phone the venue to secure your place.
