The sessions start at 3:45pm, tickets are £3 per child to include squash and a biscuit. Tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes are available in the café for accompanying adults.

With her singing bowl, silver drum and colourful outfits, Chloë’s tales of adventure and magic have enchanted children all over the UK for more than 15 years. From Cotswold tales of highwaymen to brilliant British legends of stone circles and King Arthur, giggles and gasps are guaranteed at the end of the school day.
