Sessions at 10.30am and 11.30am

We all love a good story and Polly Highton certainly knows how to tell captivating tales.

These family storytelling sessions are ideal for children age 4 to 7 years, and anyone who enjoys listening to tales well told.

Saturday 17 May - Walk like an Egyptian

Tales from the land of mummies and pyramids where the gods are feared and revered in equal measure for their temper and heroism.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. Each session will last approximately 40 minutes and will take place in the Lily Pond.

Please bring a cushion for sitting on the floor. There will be seats available for adults if you prefer.

The Kennet and Avon Kelpie is a mythical creature that helps keep the canal clean and free of rubbish, but what has happened to him? Help Nixie and her underwater friends find the Kelpie and save the canal. 

The Curse of the Kennet and Avon Kelpie can be performed in nurseries, infant schools, libraries and other settings. It is suitable for children aged 2 – 5yrs. All we need is enough floor space, a single electrical socket, and about 20 minutes to set up.
