Fairytales and Legends returns to Lynn town centre on Sunday for a day of free magic, enchantment, princesses and superheroes!

After last year’s success, Fairytales and Legends is back. This fun free event is a great day out for children and families, packed full of things to see and do.

Activities take place from 10am to 4pm at locations around the town centre.

Abbie Panks, Vancouver Quarter centre manager, said: “Every event is free, making this the perfect day out for all the family. Some activities need to be pre-booked, and I recommend you do so as early as possible – places will go fast” The highlights include:

Jack & the Beans Talk, St George’s Guildhall, King Street, 2.30-4pm: This fresh and funny retelling of a traditional story is an ideal introduction to theatre for children aged 3 to 7. Tickets can be booked at www.vancouverquarter.com/fairytalesandlegends2016

Hartbeeps, Original Musical Soundplay Classes for little ones, Shakespeare’s Barn, Arts Centre, King Street, 10am-4pm: Hartbeeps provide special music and movement classes throughout the day. Expect music, drama, creative play and dance all set to a soundtrack of remixed nursery rhymes and original children’s songs. Tickets for the sessions can be booked at www.vancouverquarter.com/fairytalesandlegends2016

Cinderella’s Ball, Corn Exchange, from 2.45pm: Every fairytale day should end with a ball, so youngsters who enjoy dancing should along to the Corn Exchange. There will also be a range of Cinders-themed activities from 10am, including a bouncy castle.

Superhero and Princess Masks, Town Hall, 10am-3pm: Whether children want to disguise themselves as a fairytale character or a modern-day superhero, they can head to the town hall and make a mask fit for either, at this drop-in workshop.

Fairy Flowers drop-in workshop, Tuesday Market Place, 10am -3pm: Children can drop in whenever a space becomes available, and make a large (single) crepe paper Fairy Flower to wear.

Create a Treasure Chest, St Nicholas’ Chapel, 10am-3pm: In this drop-in workshop, youngsters can make their own treasure chest, in the magical surroundings of the chapel.

Dragon Quest: The goblin queen and her huge and ancient dragon Kirinya are on a mission to find out why Kirinya’s eggs aren’t hatching. Children can meet the dragon and help the goblin queen with her investigations.

Otto the Otter and Ted the Fox

Otto and Ted are friendly, furry, funny characters who’ll be wheeling their cart of magic, props and fairytale relics in the town.

Children can take part in their Fairytale Challenge, where they must match three objects to win a prize.

Fairy Godmother: Every fairytale needs a fairy godmother, so she’ll be taking wishes all day on the Tuesday Market Place. If children tell her theirs, she’ll add it to her wishing tree!

Giant photo booth, New Conduit Street opposite Wilkinson’s, 10am-3pm: Any young princesses and superheroes who come along in fancy dress can have their photo taken in the giant photo booth, as a reminder of a magical day at Fairytales and Legends.
