Farm day

The old farm is a great place for storytelling, and we're delighted to be part of the traditional "Farm Day" when it opens to hundreds of children.

The old farmhouse, the barns, the fields beyond - all set the scene perfectly.

Early in the morning the storyteller takes a deep breath and mentally runs through stories about chicks and ducklings and piggies.

Here come the buses!

Here are the kids, pouring off the buses!
Now it's time for story after story after story, as each group takes a break to sit on the hay bales and connect the characters in the tales to the live creatures they've just seen and touched.
