News, events and schools' information for families across Bristol

The Bristol Hippodrome is launching a Bristol Baby Book Club on 26 January.

Bristol Baby Book Club takes stories from an independent bookstore and brings them to life with a local reader in the Bristol Hippodrome’s Piano bar. Parents/guardians can enjoy tea or coffee alongside the reading. Each month the story will be different with worlds to explore and discover together.

Bristol Baby Book Club is best suited for six months to five-year-olds and will take place on the last Friday of each month.

Current dates available –

Fri 26 Jan, Fri 23 Feb, Fri 29 Mar and Fri 26 Apr 2024.

Kyle Pryke, Creative Learning Officer at the Bristol Hippodrome, said, “It’s really exciting to bring something like this to the Bristol Hippodrome. Exploring stories with creative reading for young people and families is a core part of our Creative Learning departments vision in Bristol, allowing imaginations to flourish in a creative space encouraged and facilitated by our local creative experts. The fun of reading is for everyone and we hope to see you there!”
