Do your kids get over-excited in the run-up to Christmas? Do they need to let off some steam?

Let their creative sides loose and bring them along to our Festive Story Fun Day on Saturday 12th December between 11am and 3pm at St. Editha’s Church, Tamworth town centre.

The event – in collaboration with our friends at Dig-iT – will feature Children’s authors and illustrator, story workshops, Christmas crafts, storytelling, raffle and lots, lots more. Oh and it’s completely free to attend!
