Book character costumes are not just for World Book Day. Dust them off, re-use and recycle them and join us on the last weekend of every month for some costume capers and plenty of fancy-dress fun.

Our staff will also be dressed up as their favourite characters and ready to chat about their favourite books.

Join us for Character Themed Crafts in our studio and enter our Characters on Parade between 11:30am and 2:30pm.

Grown-ups, don’t let the young ones outdo you - feel free to come along as your favourite book characters too!  There is also a discount in our café and coffee shop for any adult dressed to impress.

Save the date for our February Dress-Up Weekend when we will be holding special costume workshops to help you get World Book Day-ready!
