Books, books and more books…

Only at Storyfest!

Only at Storyfest, will you stumble across a group of dinosaurs! The ultimate children’s book festival!

Where else could you be surrounded by dinosaurs one minute and catch a glimpse of two policemen chasing a robber in a striped top carrying swag bag the next!?!??

We were at STORYFEST in Hartfield, a two day event held over the weekend – some would liken it to the Hay Festival for the young, so much fun in a wonderful atmosphere.

The village of Hartfield was transformed for the event
