On the Tuesday of the February Half Term we visited The Fairy Tale Forest at The Lexicon. I had pre-booked tickets online and paid full price for our tickets – £2 per child plus a booking fee of 30p and I was free of charge as an accompanying adult (there is a charge for additional adults). The Fairy Tale Forest is on until 22nd February 2019 and you are advised to book tickets online to avoid disappointment.
Upon arrival, we were checked into the event and children were asked to sit on bean bags underneath a giant inflatable green leaf. The decoration certainly helped set the scene for the story telling. There was also seating provided for the adults. Little Red Reading Hood and the Wild Wolf then introduced themselves and led the session which lasted about 20 minutes. The audience then helped Little Red Reading Hood and Wild Wolf put well-known stories back together. During our session the actors certainly had the audience interacting and laughing. The children were each given stickers, a writing book and pencil as part of their ticket price so they could write their own fairy tales once home.
Thank you to The Lexicon for putting on another family friendly event during the school holidays.
