Join storyteller Liz Felton of The Story Cellar on an adventure across the stormy seas in ‘Summon Simorgh’ an interactive storytelling adventure.

Drawing inspiration from our exhibition Zanjir, families are invited to return precious photos to Princess Taj and summon Simorgh – an Iranian Mythical bird – facing creatures from the deep, a musical volcano and high mountain passes.
