Teddy Bear's Picnic with Jane Hissey and Old Bear

On Tuesday, July 23 we are inviting young children to bring their teddy bears to meet Jane Hissey and the original 'Old Bear' at a ‘Teddy Bear's Picnic’ in our courtyard garden.

Jane is a British writer and illustrator, best known for her series of children's books ‘Old Bear and Friends’ which became the basis for a BAFTA award winning television series ‘Old Bear Stories’.

Her storybook illustrations are based on real toy characters and she will be bringing the real-life ‘Old Bear’ (and friends) to tea to introduce them to the children. She will be also reading from her delightful books.


So, bring along a cushion, a blanket, and some picnic items. We’ll provide some cake! And your favourite bear is also invited – Jane will be judging a 'best loved bear' contest. (So don’t forget to bring your most-loved cuddly toy!)

Tickets are £3 per child (adults come free) and will include a voucher to spend in the shop. Come to the lunchtime picnic at midday, or the 'afternooon tea' at 3pm. Reserve your ticket here - or pop into the shop for more details!
