Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust

The Peter Pan Moat Brae Trust was set up in 2009 to save Moat Brae House and garden from demolition and to celebrate its international literary connection as ‘The Birthplace of Peter Pan’ by creating a National Centre for Children’s Literature and Storytelling in the ‘enchanted land’ that first inspired JM Barrie, author of Peter Pan, as a child in the 1870’s.

The Historic Moat Brae house and garden in Dumfries, Scotland, where the young Barrie played pirate games will be restored to create a unique visitor attraction, due to open in 2018.

Children from across the globe will be able to play, discover and let their imaginations take flight in a magical Neverland Discovery Garden, with the Centre offering a year-round programme of creative events and activities celebrating storytelling across eras, genres and cultures.
