Join in the singing or settle down in the quiet zone for  “A magical outdoor storytelling session for families from professional storyteller Martin Maudsley, exploring everyday nature and inspired by the Lost Words book. Martin will bring to life a selection of colourful folktales and legends celebrating some of the same plants and animals that feature in the Lost Words. Join him amongst the greenery of Radipole Park to find out why wren is King of the Birds, what happened to wily weasel and who’s behind the doorway in the old oak tree…” (runs between 11-12.30)
