Visitors will have the exciting opportunity to interact with Goldilocks and the Three Bears and take part in our Teddy Bear Trail around the estate. Goldilocks and the Three Bears will also be reading from our story telling tent at times slots through the afternoon. The inside of the Castle will be decorated with Teddy Bears, who will ‘bear’ special clues, helping the children solve the themed anagram in the activity booklet.
