This summer, come join us as we travel around the world with Captain James Cook and his crew of first mates! Check out Captain Cook’s washed up ship at the centre throughout the summer holidays, and join in each week as he takes you on exciting storytelling journeys across the globe. You’ll learn all about where Captain Cook travelled to and the incredible things he got up to along the way, as well as all the fascinating characters he met at these FREE kids’ events. Take a look below for more details.
