The story teller will then take party guests for a meander through the Forest where they see the characters from the book. During the walk each guest is encouraged to collect some items from the forest floor to create a Christmas themed piece of art. Rosy cheeked from your walk in the fresh air, return to the warm surroundings of Santa’s Grotto where each child will meet Santa and receive a gift. Before leaving each guest will receive an ‘I have met the gruffalo’ certificate & sticker.
