    Sign up to the free VIP Kids Club by clicking here and get your free Moby key ring (whilst stocks last).

    Around 10 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year, that’s equivalent to 100,000 double decker buses worth of plastic!

    Moby is an 18 metre long sperm whale who is guaranteed to enchant as well as having a story to tell. Step inside his seaweed strewn belly and watch the turtle swimming inside telling tales of our plastic ocean problem. Entertaining, educational and free to attend – parents, carers, children and grandparents will be fascinated and enlightened!


    – Free face painting – 3 dedicated face painters are available to add sea creature shapes to faces – open 11.30am – 3.30pm

    We need everyone to help, become a waste warrior, make the difference & say no to plastic pollution!

    Each interactive storytime session lasts roughly 20-25 minutes and takes place inside Moby’s stomach! Due to limited space, only one adult/guardian per family.

    We are delighted to confirm that, due to incredible demand, we have added three more shows on both Saturday and Sunday. 

    Please note that we have no more pre-bookable slots available. There will be a very limited number of slots for each show available to book on the day.
