Remembrance Day storytime

No scheduled events



Booking required


In the lead up to Remembrance Day come along to Anzac Square Memorial Galleries for our free children’s Storytime and craft event. This engaging session will introduce concepts of conflict, courage and loyalty through stories and art activities, from a perspective that young people can empathise with and understand.

This event is designed for children under 6 years old but older children are, of course, welcome. The morning’s activities will include a reading of the beautifully illustrated book, “Anzac Ted” by Belinda Landsberry, followed by Remembrance Day inspired craft and colouring-in activities.

“Anzac Ted” is the heart-warming tale of a teddy bear who goes to war. Told through the eyes of a young boy, this is the story of his unconditional love for his bear who was passed down to him from his grandfather. This worn and battered old bear has a powerful and moving legacy to bestow.

“Anzac Ted” reading will begin at 10:30am and children are encouraged to bring along their own teddies. Craft activities will be facilitated from 10:30 – 12:00 on Sunday 5 November 2023. All children must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

Bookings are required.
