Swoosh! Come along for an interactive telling of the traditional story of Rapunzel.
Find out why Rapunzel was taken from her parents, learn about the witch who used her magic unwisely, climb the stairs to see Rapunzel’s room in the tower and hear about the Prince who tried to help Rapunzel escape from the enchanted tower. Before you go, we’ll create a perfect photo opportunity, so you can take a photograph of your little one as a memory of your day!
