Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is holding its Summer Story Festival this weekend with a chance for youngsters to meet much-loved characters and take part in a range of activities.

Children will be able to lend a hand in Cinderella’s kitchen, help the Queen of Hearts find her tarts and decorate their own gingerbread man.

Those looking for adventure can become a daring knight and see if they can spot Snap the dragon.

In the collections centre visitors will be able to hunt out the West Runton mammoth and look through displays.

For the creative they will be able to build an enchanting house, perfect for gnomes and fairies in the Art Attack area.

As well as old favourites you can discover new fables in puppet shows from The Fools Puppet Theatre Companie or snuggle down to enjoy classic tales in the story tent.
