This summer holiday, children under 5 are invited to a free storytelling session with their parents/carers.
Performance storyteller Laura Sampson will animate Autograph's exhibition Mónica de Miranda: The Island, through exploring our relationship with the natural environment. This is a fun opportunity for the whole family to be inspired by art and storytelling.
Have any questions? We'd love to hear from you. Get in touch with us at email@example.com
