ONCE upon a time wiz­ards, fairies, knights and a uni­corn brought a mu­seum to life as chil­dren dressed up as their favourite char­ac­ters.

The Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum wel­comed over 800 guests to its spe­cial En­chanted Mu­seum on Satur­day.

Vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence manager, Sian Ham­mer­ton-Fraser, was “de­lighted” to wel­come the guests, who en­joyed tra­di­tional sto­ry­telling in the beau­ti­ful his­toric build­ings and tried out some fairy­tale crafts in the craft barn, helped by vol­un­teers.

She added: “The spec­tac­u­lar weather pro­vided a gor­geous at­mos­phere for fam­i­lies pic­nick­ing on the Vil­lage Green amidst chil­dren play­ing in fan­tas­tic cos­tumes, many of which had been home­made by long-suf­fer­ing par­ents.

“The fancy dress pa­rade was a great suc­cess with some re­ally spec­tac­u­lar en­tries and lots of smil­ing faces.”
