What the Festival contributes:

The swapping corner

The swapping corner invites the public to join in and tell their own stories, and lunchtime heralds the entrance of a parade of storybook characters, such as Little Red Riding Hood, who visit each family’s picnic spread. A listener might personally hear of Little Red’s encounter with a wolf or receive a pearl of wisdom from the Wizard of Oz.
