Bookworms is our monthly Junior Member Club, suitable for children aged 5-8 years old.  Junior Membership is available to anyone aged under 18 and is currently £12 per year.  Bookworms recieve an annual activity pack and priority access to children’s events at the Institution.

Children under 11 years old must be accompanied by a parent / carer and we ask that parent / carers remain on site for events and workshops. Children between the ages of 11-16 years old may visit the institution unaccompanied but must make themselves known as an ‘unaccompanied minor’ at the reception desk.    We will then follow our Safeguarding policy to support your visit. Young people between the ages of 16-18 years old may visit independently.
