A magical travelling library that celebrates books and the journeys they take us on.

The Lost Lending Library moves from place to place, searching for young story writers to help reach its next destination.

A feast for young imaginations, this immersive experience for children aged 6-11 years and their parents or carers will inspire a lifetime of reading and writing.
By Punchdrunk Enrichment.
