The Bluecoat

Our popular Baby Book Club returns with a course of 10 weekly sessions for parents and carers with babies aged from 3 to 12 months.

The course was developed by staff from the Participation Team at the Bluecoat working alongside artist and educator Roger Hill, who will be leading the course, to help new parents to develop their reading skills and techniques while encouraging their babies to engage with different books.

Each session includes discussion and sharing time, book recommendations and reviews, individual and group reading, and fun activities linked to the weekly core story.

Course starts on Thursday 28 Apr - Thursday 30 Jun

Sessions will take place weekly on Thursdays, 10.30am-11.30am

The course is 10 sessions long and costs just £60 (only £6 per session)*

Tickets include a hot drink.

Limited places, booking required

* Parents / Carers will need to sign up for the full 10 session course

"The Baby Book Club has introduced books I’d never heard of and reminded me of ones I loved when I was young. I have found the sessions exploring inventive ways to get more out of books really useful and have easily put them into practice at home, making reading time even more fun."
Annie MacLean (and Betsy), Baby Book Club alumni.
