September at The Book Nook
September at The Book Nook is an exciting month! We have a selection of regular events going on, as well as a local author visit nearer the end of the month, so there’s definitely an event to suit everyone. What better way to introduce your little ones to reading, or to meet some of your favourite local authors? Come along to one of our events to fill your days with more literary magic!
Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
When: Every day 12pm-4pm
Cost: £10 per child
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be invited to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party? At The Book Nook you can now recreate the delicious experience for yourself! Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and enjoy scrumptious treats like Queen of Hearts jam tarts, or Mad Hatter macaroons. You can even delve back into the world of Wonderland with a copy of Alice in Wonderland to enjoy over your pot of tea. Get ready to enjoy a very unbirthday party.
Tales for Tot’s Under 5
When: Every Thursday 11am – 11.30am
Tales for Tot’s Under 5 is perfect for your little ones to take their first steps into the wonderous world of reading. Relax whilst your tots explore new stories and songs within the cosy bookshop environment. With other activities such as colouring-in and crafts, fill their Thursday mornings with adventure and wonder (and maybe some cake too, of course).
