Next events:

Friday 2nd August 2024 – from 2.30pm
Ever wondered what happens when fairies go to sleep...? Come and discover the nighttime sounds, shadows and beautiful (but misunderstood!) bats* of Fairytale Forest.
Learn how to cast shadows and tell stories with your little ones from puppeteer, Louise Clark. Plus, find out more about our fluttering friends who live in our forest and beyond with local bat conservationist, Laura Maskery.
Sessions are adapted to suit the age range. Very little ones will love watching and playing with shadows and light. Older ones will be able to cut out and make their own paper puppets.
*Please note there are no real, live bats in this activity, only the paper kind.

Bats are sensible creatures and will not turn up in the rain so neither will we!
