During our opening hours on the day you can collect your list of clues about where to find little bear shapes throughout Eccleshall town. We have 50 little freebies to give to small children taking part and their name will be put into a free prize draw for a Bear Hunt back-pack and book, all provided by the publishers of 'We're Going On a Bear Hunt', Walker Books.
All of the following author readings will take place in The Royal Oak, due to limited numbers, tickets are avialable from The Words Worth for £2, which can be retrieved against the cost of a book.
