Character Design Workshop

with Emily Snape

The author and illustrator of 'Fergus the Furball', Emily Snape, is running a hands-on character design crash course this February half-term. 


Through games, examples and observation, children will get the chance to let their imaginations run wild. They will develop their own unique characters, focusing on expression and movement and invent memorable and original drawings to take home!


Ages 7-12 years.

Running time 2 hours

Tickets £20 per child.

Author Event

with Gabby Dawnay

& Alex Barrow

Through rollicking rhymes and bold, graphic illustrations, If I had a sleepy sloth imagines the positives and negatives of having a sloth for a pet and provides a welcome alternative to the fast pace of modern life by creating the time for readers to simply b-r-e-a-t-h-e.


Join author Gabby Dawnay and illustrator Alex Barrow for a relaxed, sloth story-time!

Ages 2-7

Running time 45 minutes + signing

Tickets £5 (redeemable against a copy of 'If I had a Sleepy Sloth')

Author Event

with Alex Milway

It's the last of the autumn days before winter sets in, which means it's time for CARNIVAL! And Hotel Flamingo, the sunniest hotel in town, is all set to join the party. Animal Boulevard is a riot of colour, and every establishment is preparing a float for the annual procession. Anna is determined to win the prize for Hotel Flamingo for the best display, despite rival hotel the Glitz having won it every year since the Carnival began.

Join author Alex Milway for rollicking fun at Hotel Flamingo!
