Over 370 students from six schools in east Manchester have benefitted from the immersive experience of ‘A World Inside A Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures’ - the stories created by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Each visit to the exhibition at Z-arts in Hulme is led by a trained story explorer who guides the children through the world of The Gruffalo, Squash and Squeeze, Zog, The Smartest Giant in Town, The Highway Rat, the Monkey Puzzle, Tiddler, The Snail and the Whale, and the Room on the Broom.

We are supporting the project which aims to encourage reading from an early age. It also helps children let their imagination run free as they explore the fully immersive exhibition. By taking part, youngsters will get to develop both language and literature skills through reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The exhibition is open to the public, and Z-arts are taking bookings for public and school groups until December 2019.

We also run regular events for young people across Manchester. For more information about these types of events, our Place Page for Clayton has some great examples, check it out!
