Sherwood Forest turns the page with Edwinstowe Book Festival

Edwinstowe Book Festival takes place this coming weekend, as one of a number of Newark Book Festival events, and RSPB Sherwood Forest is playing host to three events for all the family on Saturday (3rd September).

The magical Ugly Bugs Wingding is a puppet show which transports its audience, young or old, into a miniature world of insects and colourful creatures with its musical and fantastical storytelling.

The event is free, with performances in the Visitor Centre amphitheatre at 12pm and 1.30pm.

There is also storytelling on two guided walks through the Forest at 11am and 1pm, celebrating the work of author Helen Cresswell. When The Trees Talk is ideal for all the family – and when the trees do talk, we stop to listen.

Tickets are £2 per person and are available to purchase from the RSPB Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre Shop or through the Newark Book Festival website.

You can let the Sherwood landscape inspire you on a walk to spark your imagination and creativity, whether that be through writing or drawing.

A Wordy Walk, led by Nottingham poet and performer Leanne Moden, sets off at 1pm.

Tickets cost £5 per person and are available from the Visitor Centre or via the festival website.
