Take part in the 10 Little Bookworms trail
We're running a small trail around the gift shop and second-hand bookshop where you need to spot the 10 bookworms hiding amongst the books. Ask for a spotter sheet when you enter the shop then see if you can find them all and discover what sort of a bookworm you are. No doubt there'll be one peeking out of a book but where else will they be?
Join us for storytelling by the fire
We've selected our favourite stories to share with you, so grab a cushion and join us by the fire in the shop at selected times for a magical story. Come and meet our retail staff and volunteers dressed as their favourite characters. Why not dress up as yours too?
