Seven Stories

Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s Books, works with children’s books to create playful and profound experiences for children and young people, in order to fire their imagination and creativity, and deepen their understanding of themselves and the world.

Located in a converted Victorian warehouse in the Ouseburn Valley in Newcastle upon Tyne. Seven Stories offers visitors seven floors of galleries, creative spaces, a specialist independent children’s bookshop and a cafe to explore.

Seven Stories has a superb collection of artwork, manuscripts and archives by British writers and illustrators for children, from the 1930s to the present day, including work by figures such as Enid  Blyton, Judith Kerr, Nick Sharratt, Philip Pullman and David Almond.

In 2020 Seven Stories, a registered charity, will be celebrating its 15th birthday. The new exhibition Where Stories Come From is currently being brought to life online.

Seven Stories is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, an Accredited Museum and manages the Family Explorers project with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums on behalf of NGCV.
