Autumn Trail at Peckover House

Key Theatre, October 25, 11am and 1pm

Big Bear is inviting you to the best picnic in town!

Bring your favourite Teddy friend down to the Teddy Bear’s Forest and join in the fun.

Little Bear is a bit worried about making new friends, but you can help him on his journey as he learns when to be wary, when to be scary, and when to be bear-y!

With singalong songs, join-in dances and funny stories; this enchanting interactive musical adventure will leave pre-schoolers singing with glee and laughing until they are tired little teddy bears!

Don’t forget to bring your favourite Teddy!

Autumn Trail

Peckover House, Wisbech, Oct 21-29

Brimblebottom the brown rat will be just one of the Autumn Creatures which children will be searching for. The Autumn Trail in the garden has become a popular event for children and each year the trail has a new theme. 
‘We like to make the trail fun for children,’ said the trail’s organiser, Diane Smith, ‘as well as bringing in elements of the natural world and a touch of Autumn magic. Characters such as Michaelmas the Heavy Metal Mouse and Snoddlesworth the snail will be searched for in the garden, and there will be a special Autumn Biscuit as a prize at the end of the trail.’
