Be enchanted with magical stories at Tamworth Castle

Castle storytelling

Families are being invited to hear tales of enchantment from July 23 to July 25 at Tamworth Castle.

The storyteller will be in residence at the beginning of the school summer holiday, to tell tales of knights, dragons and princesses. Visitors are invited to come along dressed in their favourite costumes and listen to stories or have a go at telling their own. 

Visitors can also participate in various craft activities and a fairy-tale trail around the castle rooms. Children are welcome to bring their own teddies or dolls to enjoy a story too!

Storytelling takes place daily between 10.30am and 3pm, starting from Tuesday, July 23 and running until Thursday, July 25.

Special admission prices apply which include participation in a craft activity - entry is priced at £7.50 for adults, £6.50 concessions, £5.50 for children over five and £3.50 for children aged between two and four. Under-twos get in free of charge. Family tickets are also available for £24, based on two adults and two children. 

No pre-booking is necessary, but tickets can now be booked in advance to avoid disappointment, via the Tamworth Castle website at, or by calling Tamworth Information Centre in Marmion House, Lichfield Street, on 01827 709618.
