Event description
Join us as we help the Gruffalo, his child, and their friends prepare for autumn in this magical family adventure.

About this Event

It’s that time of year when many of the animals in the woods are getting ready to snuggle down for the cold winter months ahead. There are a great many things to be done and little time left, so the Gruffalo, his child, and their friends all need help to prepare for the long winter.

Featuring the much loved characters from the Gruffalo, this seasonally inspired event will give children the opportunity to freely explore the Hive. Imaginations will run wild as your little ones delve into the enchanting world of Gruffalo and his friends and explore our wonderful wild garden spaces.

Plus, there will be a craft sheet to take home and a pine cone creature to be made at leisure. And if that wasn’t enough, children will be invited be to enjoy a complimentary cup of hot chocolate from our café on their way out.

So why not join us as we enter the enthralling world of the Gruffalo and make some lasting memories with your family this Autumn.
