The Sleeping Sword

THU 27 OCT 2022 - SAT 05 NOV 2022

I’m not a king or a Wizard… but I do have a story to tell’

Meet Ben Bundle. He likes fishing and snorkelling, jumping off rocks and exploring the magical island of Bryher with his friends.

But after an accident leaves Bun blind, he fears his days if adventure are over. Until one day he is swept into the realm of his favourite story, the ancient legend of King Arthur, and Bun’s world changes forever.

Get ready for a gripping adventure where a broken promise, a magic sword and a ghostly king reveal to Bun a life-changing quest of his own.

A tale about magic, mystery, hope, love, triumph and disaster, The Sleeping Sword weaves a contemporary tale of self-discovery with Arthurian legend in a way that is utterly spellbinding.

    The World of Peter Rabbit TM Storytime Trail

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter was first published by Frederick Warne & Co. (now part of Penguin Random House UK) in 1902. The World of Peter Rabbit™ will be celebrating 120 years of mischief throughout 2022.

    In celebration of the anniversary, Frederick Warne & Co. are pleased to present “The World of Peter Rabbit™ Storytime Trail” a walk-through experience where visitors will be able to immerse themselves in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Little bunnies will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter Rabbit!

    With photo opportunities and activities to take part in along the way, there will be plenty of opportunities for families to celebrate Peter Rabbit’s birthday in 2022.
