About The Event
Every family is different. Every family is special.
Come and join this celebration of what it means to be family with prize-winning author Patrice Lawrence.
Patrice introduces her beautiful new picture book, Is That Your Mama? which recognises that families don’t always look the same but every family is truly special.
Then create your own star, like Josie's in the book, to show how special and unique you are!
Suitable for children aged 3 to 7.
All children must be accompanied by an adult.
This is a free event but space is limited. Please book a ticket for each person attending e.g. if one adult is coming with two children, please book three tickets.
