This was a special half term excursion for us, as they had a special storytelling event with craft. It had a Peter Pan theme which was perfect for us, as MiniMalik LOVES Peter Pan.
So off we trundled to see Peter Pan, not in costume as I struggled to whip something up in that short a time (pajamas had not occurred to me, despite how obvious!), and followed various costumed children in the walk from the underground station to the library.
On arrival we immediately went to listen the story telling, the story of Peter Pan told by a magnificent story teller (Kevin Graal), all the children were completely captivated. After the story was finished, some of the children stayed upstairs to add to the crocodile and do other Peter Pan related crafts, but we followed the story teller downstairs.
In a room downstairs the story continued with some riddles and participation, again all children were completely captivated!
The thing that impressed me the most was that the staff admitted that they were expecting perhaps 20 children, not the 60 or so, but they responded quickly and found a room and more activities for the children to do, without us parents noticing that it wasnt planned!
We didn’t get to see much of the rest of the library, although the toilets were great!
