Stories, poems and songs will all be brought to life at a special classic book event at Eastwood’s DH Lawrence Heritage Centre this February half term.

Professional storyteller Sophie Snell will entertain children with a variety of the old traditional stories including the classic, Alice in Wonderland.

The event will be held on Wednesday February 19 between 10am and 3pm with sessions throughout the day at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.

Sophie was nominated for a BASE (British Awards for Storytelling Excellence) last year and travels to perform all over the UK.

Also at the centre during half term week, children can also have a go at making themed arts and crafts and there will be a themed trail available all week with the chance for children to win a prize.

The DH Lawrence Bistro will be offering an Alice in Wonderland themed menu for the day on the Wednesday.
