Essex Cultural Diversity Project invites you to a fun-packed day of storytelling and family activities, on the theme of journeys, adventures and cultures from around the world.

Get comfy in our pop-up storytelling armchair, with a Nigerian alphabetical adventure by children’s author Sade Fadipe, or learn French, Spanish and even British Sign Language with Jajaja Books‘ bilingual storytelling. Try your hand at Chinese calligraphy with Colchester Chinese Culture Society, and let your imagination loose in the library’s sensory area. Help us decorate the library with Where I Like to Be Bunting, telling us about your favourite place, either real or imagined!

Free event for all ages.
