Come down to the The Sidings Orchard at Mersey Vale Nature Park for an afternoon picnic and storytelling with professional storyteller Susie Oldfield.
You’ll find picnic blankets aplenty and the amazing storyteller, Susie Oldfield, ready to tell you fruity tales, stories, myths and legends. And, while you are there you can explore the incredible greenspace that surrounds the orchard and take a walk along the river.
This event is hosted by The Orchard Project who have helped us turn this fantastic community space back into fruition (pardon the pun) and into not just a productive community orchard but a local space to cherish, treasure and populate with bespoke one-off events.
Bring your own picnic lunch and we’ll entertain you and your little’uns. We’ll have a face painter on hand who will be taking donations for which 10% of takings will go towards the HMVCG, so bring some spends.
Date: Saturday 15th June, from 12:00 – 3pm.
Book into one of three storytelling slots that suits you and your family best.
