Something very strange is happening at The Storybarn this summer... some of our books have lost their stories, including one of our favourites, The Prince and the Witch and the Thief and the Bears by Alastair Chisholm and beautifully illustrated by Jez Tuya.

It is an epic tale of dragons, princesses, ninjas and an extremely cute frog. There's just one problem: this story is disappearing right out of the book!

Bring your adventurers to Calderstones Park this summer to meet our Repair Shop Storyhunters and help them rescue this book before it's too late! 

Will your knights and ninjas accept the quest?

This fully accessible, self-led trail is brought to you by The Storybarn and Walker Books UK. The trail takes approximately 45mins - 1hr so is best suited to families with children aged 4-8, but you can set your own pace and everyone is welcome!

Tickets priced at £12.99 per family and include a copy of the book (RRP: £6.99). Find out more and book online here.
