Fairytale fun and games at medieval castle
Families in Staffordshire are being invited to hear fairy-tale stories of enchantment this bank holiday weekend in the fabulous historic setting of Tamworth Castle. The storyteller will be in residence at the medieval castle from Saturday 4 May to Monday 6 May to tell tales of knights, dragons and princesses. Visitors are invited to come along dressed in their favourite costumes and listen to stories or have a go at telling their own. Visitors can also participate in various craft activities as well as a fairy-tale trail around the castle rooms. Children are welcome to bring their own teddies or dolls to enjoy a story too!
