For the first time ever, Puffin Books will be hosting the Family area at OnBlackheath. Puffin World of Stories takes the magic of well-loved children’s books and brings them to life in a fun, immersive zone for 2-12 year-olds. With story-telling at its heart, Puffin World of Stories allows children to see, hear, touch and re-imagine books and their characters including Peter Rabbit, Wimpy Kid, The Clangers and so much more. With a jam-packed schedule of stage performances, games, arts and crafts, music, and outdoor adventures, Puffin World of Stories will inspire your young adventurers with a weekend of book-filled fun. Find out stage times for the weekend here.
Puffin World of Stories will be home to some of Puffin’s best-loved brands and characters brought to life on the Magical Storytelling Stage. Young children will see live storytellings and shows including: CBeebies favourites Hey Duggee and The Clangers; The Dinosaur that Pooped with a guest appearance from the dinosaur himself; The Magical World of Beatrix Potter and her Tale of Peter Rabbit; and author/illustrator Sophy Henn will enchant audiences with her new book Where Bear? For older children, join award-winning comedian David O’Doherty and illustrator Chris Judge for a lesson in Dangerology and you won’t want to miss The Wimpy Kid Show.
Lose yourself in the Talking Maze and earn your gloriumptious sticker by following the clues, meeting and hearing from some of your favourite book characters along the way. Against the picturesque backdrop of Blackheath, the Village Green Sports Day will offer book-themed delights such as egg and spoon races, sack races, three-legged races and the playground favourite tug-of-war.
Children will have the opportunity to meet their favourite characters including Spot the Dog, Peter Rabbit, The Clangers and our very own lovable Puffin.
Families will be able to get their creative flare on in the Kids’ Crafting Tent, a fabulous opportunity to make your own princess tutu or the maddest Mad Hatter hat! Other activities on offer include face painting, an interactive colouring wall, hair chalks and Puffin t-shirt decorating.
