The Storytelling Court and Cafe are open to the public, with a child-friendly activity wall and a programme of free exhibitions to enjoy. The cafe serves homemade lunches, drinks and snacks. And there is also a book and gift shop stocking a wide range of storytelling books, CDs and resources.

Other Attractions

Incorporated into the centre is the historic John Knox’s House, Netherbow Theatre and George Mackay Brown Library. In addition, it’s the headquarters to the Scottish Storytelling Network. And the main venue for the Scottish Storytelling Festival every October.
