YOUNGSTERS from a city nursery were given a lesson in the fine “aaarrrr-t” of storytelling at The Bridges.
A group of three-year-olds from Tavistock Nursery enjoyed an hour-long, interactive storytelling session, with a pirate and a mermaid on the shopping centre’s indoor beach installation.
This is the fourth year the centre has played host to its own all-weather beach, offering a variety of family activities.
Centre director Andy Bradley, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome the children from Tavistock Nursery to the beach, along with the real-life pirate and mermaid.
“The beach has again been a huge success.
“I’d urge any families in the area looking for a unique and fun experience to visit The Bridges before the end of August.
“The different activities we have going on at the beach are ideal for keeping the little ones entertained, giving mums and dads the perfect opportunity to sit back and relax in one of our deckchairs, and soak up the summery atmosphere.
“Even if the sun isn’t shining outside, the beach is the perfect way to embrace the summer holiday spirit.”
Nursery manager Gillian Williams, said: “All the children involved in the interactive storytelling session had an amazing day and really enjoyed their trip.”
The beach will be in Central Square until August 31. Entry is £1.
