Gruffalo at historic house


CHILDREN’S favourite The Gruffalo is coming to Lyme Park this summer.

The National Trust park will be exhibiting original artwork by Axel Scheffler, illustrato­r of The Gruffalo and other books including The Gruffalo’s Child and Room on a Broom, from June 27 to August 31.

To celebrate, there will be Gruffalo-themed activities for all the family to enjoy. Families can go in search of their favourite characters on a Gruffalo Trail around the garden and there will be storytelli­ng and picnics.

Mr Scheffler will be there on the opening day to sign books and read stories.

Rachael Walker, visitor experience assistant at Lyme Park, said: “We are expecting a very busy summer in the garden as The Gruffalo is a favourite of so many children – and their parents.”

The exhibition, trail and activities will be open every day from 11am-5pm – see www.nationaltr­
