About The Event
Join us for a very special Kids Storytime with local picture book superstar Matt Cosgrove, author of the fabulous 'Alpaca' series!
Matt will read from some of his awesome books at the Young at Heart stage. Making a special guest appearance will be none other than the Gruffalo! And there is a rumour that the Gruffalo thinks he can draw a better alpaca than Matt... in fact, the Gruffalo will challenge Matt to an alpaca drawing duel! Follow them both over to the Kids Creation Station, where Matt will teach you how to draw the best alpaca going! There may be fireworks! One thing is certain: there WILL be plenty of laughs and fun!
You can buy Matt's Alpaca books and get them signed on the day.
This event is part of our Newtown Festival programme. Access is within the festival grounds.
