Festive fun with the Moomins for children
NORDEN Farm Centre for the Arts has announced a series of Storytelling and Arts and Crafts activities this month.
Both the Arts and Crafts and Storytelling sessions are scheduled so that little ones and their grown ups can enjoy them alongside their visit to Christmas show The Fir Tree this month.
The Maidenhead-based arts centre says that families can be entertained at Norden Farm all day in the run up to Christmas and during the school holiday.
Arts and Crafts sessions are on Saturday 15, Sunday 16, Saturday 22, Friday 28, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 December at 3.15pm. Tickets are £5 per person and is suitable for ages five to eight.
Norden Farm says that the Arts and Crafts sessions vary so children can make something new each time.
Crafts include making a Christmas scene in a jar, tree decorations, a New Year’s wish jar, and clay candle holders.
Storytellers will be bringing the Moomin tales to life, with titles including The Invisible Child this festive season.
Storytelling is every Saturday in December at 10.30am and 1.30pm with two additional sessions to get you in the mood for Christmas on Sunday, December 23 at 10.30am and 1.30pm. Tickets are £2, recommended for ages 3-7.
Stories are told in the magical winter wonderland that has been created in the Gallery. It is part of Norden Farm’s Wintertide exhibition of artwork by local children, inspired by this year’s Christmas show The Fir Tree.
The exhibition has been designed by Berkshire College of Agriculture students.
