Sleepover at Queen’s Park Library!

On Friday, 4th December, Queen’s Park Library will host its first ever Brave the Dark night!

It will be an immersive evening where you’ll enter another world on a quest to find clues and solve mysteries. The project is being run by staff from several Westminster libraries in partnership with winning theatre producers, Nimble Fish.

There will be two events: the first will be a family event for children aged 7 – 9 and their parents or carers, running from 7pm to 8pm. Each child will need to be accompanied by an adult and there are 20 places available, children and adults combined.


The second event is for children aged 10 – 12 and will start at 8:30pm. The sleepover will run until the following morning.  There are places for 20 children who will not be accompanied by parents or carers. Children should come dressed for a sleepover and bring sleeping bags, pillows and anything else that might make them comfy. There will be a midnight feast!

Sleepover participants will be managed by library staff and Nimble Fish practitioners who are fully DBS checked. Parent or carers will need to collect their children between 7:30am and 8am the following morning.

Advance booking is essential for both events. Admission to both Brave the Dark sessions is free, on a first come, first served basis.  Please express your interest no later than 30th November by calling 020 7641 6200 and asking for Queen’s Park Library or you can email Lucy Gill at the library.

This is a wonderful new initiative for the younger members of our community. It was brainstormed with local children last month and will include many of the wonderful ideas and suggestions they came up with.
