Children enjoy bedtime stories on the giant bed

Our resident puppeteer Tony Gee proved very popular with his storytelling last week. He had his young audience gripped with his wonderful stories based on his travels to exotic countries.

Children arrived in their pyjamas and enjoyed some snacks before settling on the Magnificently Mammoth Storytelling Bed in the Gallery for bedtime stories. They then enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows before heading off home to bed.

The storytelling sessions are part of the Summer of Play taking place at Hannahs at Seale-Hayne until the end of August. The programme of fun activities and events for children also includes the Fairy Door Trail. Fairy Door Passports are for sale in the Gallery with an ink stamp so children can hunt for fairy doors hidden around the grounds of Seale-Hayne. Passports are just £2 and new fairy doors are being added to the trail every “Fairy Friday”.
