Horrible Halloween activities for everyone!   

Room On The Broom story times
Come along to a library near you to enjoy hearing this favourite story in half term!

“The witch had a cat, and a very tall hat,
And long ginger hair, which she wore in a plait
How the cat purred and how the witch grinned
As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind…”

The witch and her cat fly happily over forests, rivers and mountains on their  broomstick until a stormy wind blows away  the witch’s hat, bow and wand. They are retrieved by a dog, a bird and a frog, and each animal asks for a ride on the broom. What will happen next?
FREE. Suitable for ages 3 and up, accompanied by an adult. No need to book, just come along.
