Fancy finding out a bit more on all things Jurassic? Dinosaur World Torquay will be joining us each day with fossil boxes and dinosaur bones – perfect for budding paleontologists!  

And that’s not all…

During the summer event days there will also be a pop up reading and drawing area for you to use at your leisure. This pop up area is supported by IKEA Exeter and will be in the main Princesshay Mall.

The reading area has children’s books supplied – why not bring an old book and take away another one to read? If you have no book to bring and wish to take one away please make a donation in our Wishing Well for our Charity of the Year Living Options Devon.

We are pleased to be welcoming Exeter Library to this pop up area on Thursdays at 11am for Story Time and Nursery Rhymes.
