Gruffalo Crumble Day, Saturday 24th June 11am-4pm

We have a very special, very tall & very hairy visitor coming back to the bookshop to celebrate ‘A Taste of Chorley’ – yes, it’s the Gruffalo!!
Book your place to meet the knobbly-kneed creature himself, join in with the story & activity based on the ‘Gruffalo Crumble’ cookbook and have some fun!
Meet & Make Sessions on the hour at 11, 12, 1, 2 and 3 o’clock.
Please note – this is a TICKETED EVENT with each Meet & Make slot lasting 30-40 minutes for a small group in our upstairs room.
Our last Gruffalo event was VERY popular so early booking advised!
Tickets available from the bookshop (call in, ring 01257 262773 or email
£5 1 adult/1 child (£2 off any full-priced Julia Donaldson book or Gruffalo range toy)
£3 extra child
As our upstairs room has limited space, the ticket system is designed to fit in as many children as possible rather than adults – we hope you understand! Spare adults are very welcome to browse our lovely books downstairs :)
